Second small patch [2] contains fixes regarding UVM:

I think it should be MIN(VM_MAXUSER_ADDRESS, ptoa(
Otherwise it's a change in behavior not related to i386PAE.

Just checked, uvmexp elements are "int", so IMHO ctob((rlim_t) is less error-prone (again, risk of overflow with free > 4GB).

Not that it could happen on a daily basis :o

- ptoa =>  ctob use (to avoid vaddr_t casts, which might be bad for systems
with total RAM>  4GB)
- a small fix inside AGP heuristics to avoid masking high order bits

Compile tested for ALL, GENERIC, XEN3 kernels for i386, and GENERIC, XEN3*
for amd64.

Looks good.

Committed, thanks

In case someone wonders, if PAE is added as default option for ALL, more
fixes will be needed in some drivers under sys/dev/ (paddr_t vs unsigned
long issues). Question is: should it be added to ALL for additional checks?

I think so. Such issues should be fixed in MI code anyway. paddr_t !=
unsigned long is something we want to support.

Will do.

Thanks all for the review.
