L4 there may be a better way to get memory than emulating the vm_* calls, so
I think the libc functions should be used.

If we use `m*' functions how will we do `vm_copy' and other Mach:isms? (It sounds like masochism, doesn't it? ;-) It's best to use only one interface that can do all we'd want to -- the `vm_*' functions. Later we can switch to using something like Kernel Abstraction Layer library. (Farid Hajji names it Virtual Kernel if i recall correctly.)
