    sys/powerpc/powerpc  pmap.c 
  Remove pmap_pvo_allocf zone alloc function. It was a way of
  using the direct-mapping of physmem to force PTE data structures
  to be physically addressable so the interrupt-time real-mode
  DSI trap handler could perform PTE spills. However, the memory
  may have been > 256Mb, which would have caused a BAT spill and
  The new trap code no longer handles PTE spills, so the requirement
  that these pages be direct-mapped no longer applies. The irony is
  UMA_MD_SMALL_ALLOC will return direct mappings for these structs :-)
