for "what's vmem", see:

as i wrote in the previous mail, my primary purpose at this point is
to make amap use kernel_map rather than kmem_map.
(the latter is more restricted and there's no point for amap to use it.)

for long term, i'd like to replace extent(9) and malloc(9),
but my implementation is still far from it.
