DESCRIPTION

The pmap_is_modified() and pmap_ts_referenced() functions return information about physical pages.

RETURN VALUES

The pmap_is_modified() function returns the status of the ‘‘page modified’’ bit for the physical page m.

The pmap_ts_referenced() function returns a count of reference bits for a page m, clearing those bits. It is not necessary for every reference bit to be cleared, but it is necessary that 0 only be returned when there are no remaining reference bits set on the page.
