VM_PAGE_IO_START(9) BSD Kernel Developer's Manual VM_PAGE_IO_START(9)NAME
vm_page_io_start, vm_page_io_finish -- ready or unready a page for I/O
The vm_page_io_start() function prepares the page for I/O by incrementing its busy flag by one.
The vm_page_io_finish() function lowers the busy count on the page by one, if the resulting busy count is zero, a wakeup(9) will be issued if
the page has been marked VPO_WANTED. A page is typically marked VPO_WANTED by a thread to register its interest in the page to either com-
plete I/O or becoming available for general use.

VM_PAGE_FREE(9) BSD Kernel Developer's Manual VM_PAGE_FREE(9)NAME
vm_page_free, vm_page_free_toq, vm_page_free_zero, vm_page_try_to_free -- free a page
The vm_page_free_toq() function moves a page into the free queue, and disassociates it from its object. If the page is held, wired, already
free, or its busy count is not zero, the system will panic. If the PG_ZERO flag is set on the page, it is placed at the end of the free
queue; otherwise, it is placed at the front.
If the page's object is of type OBJT_VNODE and it is the last page associated with the object, the underlying vnode may be freed.
The vm_page_free() and vm_page_free_zero() functions both call vm_page_free_toq() to actually free the page, but vm_page_free_zero() sets the
PG_ZERO flag and vm_page_free() clears the PG_ZERO flag prior to the call to vm_page_free_toq().
The vm_page_try_to_free() function verifies that the page is not held, wired, busy or dirty, and if so, marks the page as busy, drops any
protection that may be set on the page, and frees it.
vm_page_try_to_free() returns 1 if it is able to free the page; otherwise, 0 is returned.

What is the point of this? Whenever I close my shell it appends to the history file without adding this. I have never seen it overwrite my history file.
# When the shell exits, append to the history file instead of overwriting it
