Eight megabytes of system space?  Strikes me as a lot, for a VAX.  (Is
system space even eight megabytes big?)

Or is the VAX pmap in question maybe trying to be prepared for the
rtVAX case and demanding physically contiguous pages?

What makes you think it's mmapped?  I'm wondering if this could be a
misfire somewhere in the `extend the stack' code, trying to extend the
stack through all of P1 space.
