Description Justin Hibbits freebsd_committer 2016-03-16 18:23:26 UTC
Tunables scaled against physical memory can exhaust KVA on large-memory 32-bit systems (PAE-style), causing early boot panics.

One possible solution would be to scale static allocations(based on maxusers) against KVA rather than physmem.
