    sys/vm               memguard.c 
  Implement support for buffers larger than PAGE_SIZE in MemGuard.  Adds
  a little bit of complexity but performance requirements lacking (this is
  a debugging allocator after all), it's really not too bad (still
  only 317 lines).
  Also add an additional check to help catch really weird 3-threads-involved
  races: make memguard_free() write to the first page handed back, always,
  before it does anything else.
  Note that there is still a problem in VM+PMAP (specifically with
  vm_map_protect) w.r.t. MemGuard uses it, but this will be fixed shortly
  and this change stands on its own.
