    Correct a very old and very obscure bug: vmspace_fork() calls
    pmap_copy() if the mapping is VM_INHERIT_SHARE.  Suppose the mapping
    is also wired.  vmspace_fork() clears the wiring attributes in the vm
    map entry but pmap_copy() copies the PG_W attribute in the PTE.  I
    don't think this is catastrophic.  It blocks pmap_remove_pages() from
    destroying the mapping and corrupts the pmap's wiring count.
    This revision fixes the problem by changing pmap_copy() to clear the
    PG_W attribute.
