  Replace the cache-point linear search algorithm for VM map entries with
  a red-black tree.  This makes VM map lookups O(log N) in all cases.
  Note that FreeBSD seems to have gone the splay-tree route, but I really
  dislike the fact that splay trees are constantly writing to memory even
  for simple lookups.  This would also limit our ability to implement a
  separate hinting/caching mechanism.  A red-black tree is basically a
  binary tree with internal nodes containing real data in addition to the leafs,
  simlar to a B+Tree.  A red-black tree is very similar to a splay tree but it
  does not attempt to modify the data structure for pure lookups.
  Caveat: we tried to revive the map->hint mechanism but there is currently
  a serious crash/lockup bug related to it so it is disabled in this commit.
