Only the mb_map case was fixed ... by reclaiming map space (by draining 
out the mbuf using protocols..)

The kmem_map case it a little harder ... a couple of things probably 
should happen:

	- reclaim kmem_map map space

	- allow kmem_map to grow

...neither of which are all that easy with the current code structure,
