 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.
