Yes I agree that in an attach routine we should to use a blocking
malloc (M_WAITOK) flag.

But, here I am observing same page fault even with (M_WAITOK) flag.

Here, page fault is occurring inside the malloc function and driver is
not receiving any NULL or any other value.

I have started downloading the current kernel. I will verify this
