It seems like the panic has gone away.  I tried various
combination of http_load and start/stop-sequences of the web
server, and the kernel did not panic.  I think we should consider
the kernel problem fixed.

Apache still does not behave well, though.  Some threads seems to
end up in a state where they continuously consume CPU time.
Typically for each run of http_load, a handful of threads ended
up in this state.  Alas, my attempt at debugging the stuff with
gdb did not succeed.  I could not get gdb to print out
thread-specific information (info threads).  So, whether the bug
lies within the Apache software or NetBSD's run time libraries is
still unknown.
