I just got a deadlock again (not the panic) by runing a bunch of "make
cleandir" in paralell (in different dirs, of course). Last message was
"proc: table is full". The machine was working before that, I could switch
consoles, but every disk access blocked.
Dropping into DDB and doing "ps" showed lots of "rm" processes waiting on
"ufs_has" (inetd, nmbd and several others waiting for it too) and one "rm"
waiting on "softupd".
What should I look for?
