I see what I think is a non-standard gcc extension at uvm_pager.c:294
struct vm_page *pg, *pgs[npages];
This, from rev 1.59 of uvm_pager.c. It crops up in uvm_bio.c v1.26, too.
Is this usage...acceptable? If so, well, there you go: variable-sized arrays.
If it's not OK, well, what's wrong with relying
on some features of the bundled compiler?
