I am running  NetBSD-1.6.1 on a  FLASH based system without a swap 
While running the system I monitor memory usage with top. Top shows 7Mb 
for File
which I assume is the buffer cache, 1.6M Free and 17M inactive. 
Eventually system
runs out of memory. The question I have is if the pageout daemon moves 
 pages from the
UBC to free memory. Can I limit amout of pages in the cache ?
