  Intel describes the behavior of their processors as "undefined" if two or
  more mappings to the same physical page have different memory types, i.e.,
  PAT settings.  Consequently, if pmap_change_attr() is applied to a virtual
  address range within the kernel map, then the corresponding ranges of the
  direct map also need to be changed.  Enhance pmap_change_attr() to handle
  this case automatically.
  Add a comment describing what pmap_change_attr() does.
