My proposal for asleep() was somewhat akin to a cross between sleep()
and timeout(); a callout routine gets called some time after another
process does a wakeup() on a particular wait channel.
See the tech-kern archive for details.
The proposal for FreeBSD asleep() I read struck me as problematic to
use safely. I was unaware that it had been implemented.
