 It looks to me as if pid 327 lid 1 is probably waiting for pid 327 lid
 2, which is hanging on the network. It's blocked in genfs_do_putpages
 waiting for the page it's trying to write out to become unbusy, and
 lid 2 there is a clear candidate for holding it.
 I don't immediately see how to inspect the uvm structures to find out
 whether this is in fact the case, but maybe someone who knows more
 about uvm can help.
 (btw, sorry I never got around to answering your previous mail in this
 PR... it's been marked unread-and-urgent the last three months. sigh)
