pmap(9) [freebsd man page]

PMAP(9) 						   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual						   PMAP(9)

NAME
pmap -- machine-dependent portion of virtual memory subsystem SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/param.h> #include <vm/vm.h> #include <vm/pmap.h> DESCRIPTION
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 implemen- tation after each relevant pmap operation.
