I didn't see any of the concerns David expressed earlier really addressed
in any way.

I very much appreciate the work on better support for X86 architectural
features.  However, this particular change really seems to me to embed
a lot of X86 quirks in the MI VM system.  I don't like that.  The API
to the MI parts of the NetBSD kernel should not be dictated by oddities
of the X86 MMU or memory controllers.
