NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pmap -- machine-dependent portion of virtual memory subsystem

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <vm/vm.h>
     #include <vm/pmap.h>

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pmap module is the machine-dependent portion of the FreeBSD VM (Virtual
 Memory) sub-system.  Each function documented herein must have its
     own architecture-dependent implementation.

     The pmap module is responsible for managing hardware-dependent objects
     such as page tables, address maps, TLBs, etc.

     Machine-dependent code must provide the header file <machine/pmap.h>.
     This file contains the definition of the pmap structure:

	   struct pmap {
		   /* Contents defined by pmap implementation. */
	   };
	   typedef struct pmap *pmap_t;

     This header file may also define other data structures used by the pmap
     implementation.

     The header file <vm/pmap.h> defines a structure for tracking pmap statistics
 (see below).	This structure is defined as:

	   struct pmap_statistics {
		   long        resident_count; /* number of mapped pages */
		   long        wired_count;    /* number of wired pages */
	   };

     The implementation's struct pmap must contain an instance of this structure
 having the name pm_stats, and it must be updated by the implementation
 after each relevant pmap operation.
