I like that, vmem is really nice. It was build to replace extend etc.
Is it your Idea to use vmem as a backing for the pool allocator and
add some generic pools to replace malloc?
This question just came into my mind as the pool allocator is somehow
used to allocate "virtual address space".
This would bring NetBSD close to what Solaris does with it's vmem/
