pmap_page_exists_quick — determine if a page exists in a physical map
pmap_page_exists_quick(pmap_t pmap, vm_page_t m);
The pmap_page_exists_quick() function is used to quickly determine if the page m exists in the physical map pmap. It is typically called from the VM paging code.
The PV count used above may be changed upwards or downwards in future; it is only necessary that TRUE be returned for a small subset of pmaps for proper page aging.
The pmap_page_exists_quick() returns TRUE only if the PV entry for the physical map pmap is one of the first 16 PVs linked from the page m.
