I saw there are many PRs about softdep still open.

Here's perhaps another one - can someone confirm this?

On an ancient 80386-DX, I experiences crashes (system locks up) when 
partitions mounted softdep during large file operations (installing via 
bpm). Without softdep, things go fine.

Case is reproducable.

I assume it's the slow CPU as this system has 20 MB RAM. I successfully 
run large file operations on 16 MB systems - with CPUs > 200 MHz.

Worth another PR?
