I am writing a piece of code (a filesystem), and i need to alloc kernel memory of
a dynamic size for bitmap cache stuff.
For the moment, i alloc'ed all that with uvm_km_zalloc, and then i read the
vm_space structure, and do a loop over all the vm_map_entry structures it contains.
I didn't test the code, but i'd like to know which of the uvm api or malloc(9) api (with
a special type specific to the filesystem) to choose (before going further)
Thanks in advance.
