            Bug ID: 193465
           Summary: [mips] malloc failures on mips, ath(4)
           Product: Base System
           Version: 11.0-CURRENT
          Hardware: mips
                OS: Any
            Status: Needs Triage
          Severity: Affects Only Me
          Priority: ---
         Component: kern

r269962 vmstat -z output on my mips32 router.

It looks like svn r269963 removed a series of #if PAGE_SIZE checks that are
tripping up mips boards that have a substantially small amount of RAM(64M in my

Reverting the removal of the #if PAGE_SIZE checks in kern_malloc.c is enough to
alleviate this error.  I have also included some very strange vmstat -z output
where I've captured at 269962 and then at 269963 that shows, at 269963, almost
all allocation to be in the 16k buckets where 269962 doesn't have any
allocation entry above 4k.

ath(4) is unable to malloc dma'able memory on initialization and causes a hard
deadlock waiting in kmem_arena (as shown by ctrl-t on serial console).
