  Modified files:
    sys/sys              systm.h 
    sys/conf             files 
  Added files:
    sys/kern             subr_unit.c 
  Add a new API for allocating unit number (-like) resources.
  Allocation is always lowest free unit number.
  A mixed range/bitmap strategy for maximum memory efficiency.  In
  the typical case where no unit numbers are freed total memory usage
  is 56 bytes on i386.
  malloc is called M_WAITOK but no locking is provided (yet).  A bit of
  experience will be necessary to determine the best strategy.  Hopefully
  a "caller provides locking" strategy can be maintained, but that may
  require use of M_NOWAIT allocation and failure handling.
  A userland test driver is included.
