Sounds good to me.

I went ahead and sent in a PR (pr kern/6293) before these last few messages
came through.  It just left MAX_KMAPENT at 500 (1000 in current) but made
it overrideable.  But the version using NPROC sounds better.

(and while we're in there, anyone want to hit port-i386/6226?  It's just
 a one-line patch, fixes an incorrect message, but it hasn't been touched
 since I sent it in...)
