Compound that with unability to have separate user and kernel

family MMUs do), and the userspace can't have even that 4GB,
but is limited to at least 3.5/0.5 (user/kernel) split, more
commonly to 3.0/1.0 split.

How does FreeBSD do this? What about other OSs? Do they map out most
of userland on syscall entry and map it in as required for their
equivalents to copy_to/from_user? (Taking the performance hit in doing
so?)
