Something I've been wondering about lately...
Why does tsleep() take a hardcoded string as its mnemonic wchan value?
I can't imaging this would be any more informative than a simple
symbol address (especially since we only display the first 6 chars of
it anyway), and it seems a bit of a waste of memory to have all those
extra strings in the kernel image.
