 I'm afraid it's too late for 9.0 release.
 All other m68k ports have the same definitions.
 IMO all pmap functions described in pmap(9) man page should be
 declared in MI header, but I guess they aren't by histrical reason.
 In this manner, I have a feeling that sun3 should define all
 exported pmap APIs in the common sun3/include/pmap.h,
 rather than sun3/sun3x specific headers.
 (though there is difficulty on pmap_prefer(9))

 It uses pmap_kenter_pa() then MI pmap_update() is required.
 I'm not sure which level API can be used for modules...
