Unfortunately, I'm seeing the problem more on machines using 
RAIDframe, not on machines using softdeps.  So this patch probably 
wouldn't do much good for me.. :( 

Of course, I tried to reproduce the problem last night on a couple of 
test boxes (stressing RAIDframe on one and softdeps on the other), 
and couldn't get anything to crash at all :(  I couldn't even get a 
base-case established for the problem.. :(

Glad to hear this patch works for you -- I think I'll just have to 
find more time to fix the issues in RAIDframe..
