    That's interesting - I've been running a number of -j4 builds on an
 ES40 with only 2 cpus enabled (to more closely simulate the CS20), and 
 haven't been able to hit that message, or some checks I've got in the
 pool_cache code.
    What I was trying to do was to see if just changing the mutex 
 initialization to IPL_SCHED was enough, or if it needed to be IPL_HIGH.
 I was also trying IPL_SCHED and IPL_HIGH in the pool_cache_bootstrap()
 just prior to the mutex_init.
