Thank you very much for this. I have been dreaming about running
NetBSD for one of my Pine64+ boards and even considered porting the
pmap support from FreeBSD to NetBSD just because NetBSD cross builds
from a non-NetBSD host.

What did you mean by "pmap should be work even if PID_MAX >= 65536"?
Does that mean that the PIDs are of type uint16 for aarch64?

About "COMPAT_NETBSD32", is that supported in userland in any way?

So to build NetBSD for pine64 should this be OK?

machine: -m evbarm
arch:  -a aarch64
dts: sun50i-a64-pine64-plus.dts
