Oliver fixed the problem. bhyve's vmm.ko uses VM_MIN_ADDRESS, which defaults to NULL in FreeBSD. We modified that to be at 64k to prevent NULL dereferences. Combine that with the removal of map_at_zero, NULL deref is not possible anymore. But since we bumped VM_MIN_ADDRESS up, bhyve's vmm.ko no longer attempts to map at NULL (which it absolutely needs to). The change Oliver made simply uses 0 instead of VM_MIN_ADDRESS. If this is a change FreeBSD wants upstream, we'd love it merged upstream.
