    sys/i386/i386        pmap.c 
  Introduce pmap_try_insert_pv_entry(), a function that conditionally creates
  a pv entry if the number of entries is below the high water mark for pv
  Use pmap_try_insert_pv_entry() in pmap_copy() instead of
  pmap_insert_entry().  This avoids possible recursion on a pmap lock in
  Eliminate the explicit low-memory checks in pmap_copy().  The check that
  the number of pv entries was below the high water mark was largely
  ineffective because it was located in the outer loop rather than the
  inner loop where pv entries were allocated.  Instead of checking, we
  attempt the allocation and handle the failure.
