xsrc/47099: Running NetBSD 6 as VMware workstation guest, starting X hangs when NetBSD is allocated >1 CPUs

>Originator: Howard Guo
>Release: NetBSD 6.0
System: NetBSD howard.houzuo.net 6.0 NetBSD 6.0 (GENERIC) amd64
In xorg.conf, input device uses "vmmouse" driver and graphical device uses
In ".xinitrc", I specify either startxfce4 or startkde (both of them may be
used to replicate this issue).
Run `startx`. If NetBSD is allocated more than 1 CPU core, it will hang and
NetBSD loses responsiveness totally. Host CPU usage on the allocated cores will
If NetBSD is allocated only one CPU core, `startx` will work reliably.
1. Allocate 2, 4 or 8 CPU cores to NetBSD guest
2. Run `startx`
3. Observe that NetBSD loses responsiveness and host CPU core usage on the
allocated cores are 100%
`startx` never has a problem when NetBSD runs on only one CPU core.
