I see it in the Internals, but then it is the matter of using it.

Getting nonpaged buffers for buffered I/O may be done with kmalloc (or even
vmalloc), but with direct I/O the irp$l_svapte shall contain the system
virtual address of the first pte that maps the buffer.
The address of that pte is gotten with mmg$svaptechk, but I have not got
that routine or know what it's equivalent is.

Maybe buffered I/O could be used until we get Memory Management going.
