Looks like I'm going to have to start supping NetBSD-current again so I
can recompile everything with the new VM system.  But...

That recompile will certainly go a whole lot faster now that this is
working.  Just tried 1.3F June 7 on my M38 and it's quite a bit faster.
With just primary cache I was hitting around 7142 dhry/s, with secondary
enabled as well, I'm now hitting 8196 dhry/s.

Impressive, very impressive. :-)
