Aren't they allocated from the same memory zones? I have a router with 256  
Mb RAM, it had a panic with ng_nat once due to exhausted kmem. So, what  
these number from it's sysctl do really mean?

vm.kmem_size: 83415040
vm.kmem_size_max: 335544320
vm.kmem_size_scale: 3
vm.kvm_size: 1073737728
vm.kvm_free: 704638976
