 I applied Michael's patch along w/ Jason Thorpe's L1 patch to a fresh
 netbsd-5 checkout.  Recompiled w/ DEBUG/DIAGNOSTIC/LOCKDEBUG.  So far
 the new kernel has been banged on for 24 hours w/o even a slight
 hiccup.  Before the patches, it was lucky if it made it 5 minutes w/
 So while it hasn't had in-depth testing, it is definitely a *LOT* more
 stable than what it was, so hopefully this PR can be resolved now.
 On a side note, the disk issue I was having seems to be unrelated.  It
 appears that something (not sure if disk itself or controller) would
 get in some kind of weird stat.  That would cause problems and make it
 appear that the disk had no label.  I swapped the drive from the
 Adaptec 29160 that I had installed to make Tru64 happy back to the
 internal 53c1010, and so far the problem hasn't reoccurred.  So it
 seems to be completely unrelated, sorry!
