I don't know. but I think that the simplest solution for LOCKDEBUG

don't have a better idea right now.

I pointed out in a seperate forum that kernel_lock should no longer be
required in this path. Removing the KERNEL_LOCK() call in init_main.c
should solve the problem.

Do you mean the KERNEL_LOCK() call in configure() in kern/subr_autoconf.c:484?
