I just did that -- to create a swap file :)

No, there's another one regarding a free page, still in
the vm_* area.
So far I was able to compile bash (and apache, for kicks) --
seems to me that the ATA disks are running in PIO mode, even though
I can't explicitly see it (atacontrol doesn't say anything special),
I see 85-95% interrupts when untarring something with many files.
I tried to build world on my x86 machine last night (5.2-BETA),
and IT panic'ed in the middle of compiling some PPC code :-(
