1. I used uvm_km_kmemalloc1 bcos man page says it allocate wired pages.
   (Still unsure but much later from src code comment, I found it may do only
    when uvm_object is type kernel_object).

2.  kernel_map - I used bcos I do not know what exactly to use.  From some
    references and guess I used it, considering I wanted to allocate wired pages
    with in kernel owned by kernel.
