As you may have seen, I have committed the patch, with the change
suggested by Richard. Sorry to do it before you could, it seemed
to at least fix one problem for me, so I wanted it in ;-) Bill
Sommerfeld also committed it to the i386 mp branch. It fixed
the memory corruption problem I was seeing (at least, it certainly
looks like it).

Anyway, thanks! This one may actually explain several PRs, which
all mention 'softdep_write_complete: lock is held' panics. They
all seem to come from bio interrupts at a time when lkt_held
is not yet reset back to -1.
