Log Message:
Add a read/write lock to the proclists and PID hash table.  Use the
write lock when doing PID allocation, and during the process exit path.
Use a read lock every where else, including within schedcpu() (interrupt
context).  Note that holding the write lock implies blocking schedcpu()
from running (blocks softclock).

PID allocation is now MP-safe.

Note this actually fixes a bug on single processor systems that was probably
extremely difficult to tickle; it was possible that schedcpu() would run
off a bad pointer if the right clock interrupt happened to come in the
middle of a LIST_INSERT_HEAD() or LIST_REMOVE() to/from allproc.
