[ros-dev] A slightly more aggressive mm patch

This removes the redundant notion of .Flags.Type in freelist, and leaves only
the non-redundant MM_PHYSICAL_PAGE_BIOS. MM_PHYSICAL_PAGE_FREE is reported
when the page has a 0 reference count and MM_PHYSICAL_PAGE_USED is reported
when the reference count is nonzero.
A function, MmGetPageType is added to replace the old functionality.
Init memory being freed seems to cause a lot of grief. I'm going to see if
there's a way to decentralize how those pages are set up, given that the
method used to dispose of them is spread out too.
Discordant is the murmur at such treading down of lovely things while
god's most lordly gift to man is decency of mind. Call that man only
blest who has in sweet tranquility brought his life to close.
If only I could act as such, my hope is good.
-- Aeschylus' Agamemnon (translated by H. W. Smyth)
