Thank you for the detailed investigation.  I think this is unlikely to be a
pmap prolem, since the assertion is concerned with software state - CLEAN
and DIRTY are very definite states set by UVM.  The pmap only comes into
play if the page's state is UNKNOWN.  The NFS changes on yamt-pagecache are
unlikey to help either, as you discovered.  I need to think about this one
