	NVNODE defaults to (NPROC + NTEXT + 100), which is generally
	way too small on a machine running in any kind of fileserving
	capacity. It can be set in a kernel config, but that can make
	sharing a kernel between machines with widely different memory
	values difficult.

	What do people think of a BUFCACHE like value which would allow
	you to pick a percentage of memory to use for NVNODE?

	Thoughts for a sane name? :)
