Nix mark 4

Besides the new mount table... 16k user pages, 4k kernel pages (support for 2M/1G), and no BSS segment. The cache relies on segments, the kernel malloc asks for pages like everybody else, and there is a reworked memory subsystem. Will post a link to a new TR soon.

9pix for plan 9

There is a copy of the stock 9 kernel modified to include the changes described in previous entries of this blog at See 9n.README.
The mark II nix will be made public later this year at the same place.
