The upside of this is that I have I'll write up a patch tomorrow that
allows several different subsystems to allocate memory from a single
buffer that is allocated at boot time.

For example a video grabber would need a big contiguous physical
buffer, just like "sg". Using my big buffer patch, you would be able
to share that buffer between these two "users".


I think such a patch already exists....
Look around for "bigphysarea", or something like that, created for
framegrabbing with the Meteor frame-grabbers.
