Log Message:
Pull up following revision(s) (requested by ad in ticket #725):
        sys/kern/kern_rwlock.c: revision 1.30
A workaround for a bug with some Opteron revisions where locked operations
sometimes do not serve as memory barriers, allowing memory references to
bleed outside of critical sections.  It is possible that this is the
reason for pkgbuild's longstanding crashiness.
For rwlocks, always enable the explicit membars. They were disabled only
on x86, and since they are not in the fast-path it's not a big deal.
TODO: convert these to an atomic_membar_foo() or similar that does ordering
between regular data references and atomic references.
