Heads up: UVM changes
I changed UVM to allow for concurrent page faults on shared objects.
Previously this was single threaded due to locking, which caused a lot of
contention over busy objects like libc.so or PostgreSQL's shared buffer
This works well for me on amd64, but I haven't tried it on other machines.
From code inspection I can see that some architectures need more work so
this is disabled on them until I can make the needed changes: hppa, mips,
powerpc and riscv. It's enabled everywhere else.
I will keep an eye out for any bug reports.
