While tsleep() does not really do as the comment says it will,
I'm not sure we want it to.  Enabling interrupts while cold is
not necessarily a good idea (safer to wait until autoconfig is
finished).  My hope is that with the code movement I suggested,
we could change that bit of code in tsleep() to this:

	if (cold)
		panic("tsleep cold");
