/*
 * anonymous memory management
 *
 * anonymous virtual memory is short term virtual memory that goes away
 * when the processes referencing it go away.    an anonymous page of
 * virtual memory is described by the following data structure:
 */

struct vm_anon {
	struct vm_page *an_page;	/* if in RAM [an_lock] */
	int an_ref;			/* reference count [an_lock] */
	int an_swslot;		/* drum swap slot # (if != 0) 
				   [an_lock.  also, it is ok to read
				   an_swslot if we hold an_page PG_BUSY] */
	simple_lock_data_t an_lock;	/* lock for an_ref */
};

/*
 * for active vm_anon's the data can be in one of the following state:
 * [1] in a vm_page with no backing store allocated yet, [2] in a vm_page
 * with backing store allocated, or [3] paged out to backing store
 * (no vm_page).
 *
 * for pageout in case [2]: if the page has been modified then we must
 * flush it out to backing store, otherwise we can just dump the
 * vm_page.
 */

/*
 * anons are grouped together in anonymous memory maps, or amaps.
 * amaps are defined in uvm_amap.h.
 */

/*
 * processes reference anonymous virtual memory maps with an anonymous 
 * reference structure:
 */

struct vm_aref {
	int ar_pageoff;			/* page offset into amap we start */
	struct vm_amap *ar_amap;	/* pointer to amap */
};

/*
 * the offset field indicates which part of the amap we are referencing.
 * locked by vm_map lock.
