I think I found a problem with the way socket locks are changed
in uipc_usrreq.c: unp_setpeerlocks() takes both sockets locked by the
uipc_lock. But on return the sockets may be unlocked: a
KASSERT(mutex_owned(lock) at the end of unp_setpeerlocks() fired as
soon as sendmail started talking with milters:
__kernassert(c05f97b1,c062a938,fe,c062a7a7,0,d1149000,c2ecbb80,0,c2ecbb00,0) at 
unp_setpeerlocks(c2ee7158,c2cca000,0,80,14,0,d1a5bc2c,c2ee7158,c2ee7158,4) at 
uipc_usrreq(c2ee7158,5,0,c2e65a00,0,0,0,d1862d00,d1862d00,d1862d00) at 
 at netbsd:soaccept+0x60
do_sys_accept(d1870580,4,d1a5bccc,d1a5bd28,d1a5bccc,bfbfed54,8,0,0,0) at 
sys_accept(d1870580,d1a5bd00,d1a5bd28,bb904000,d1a7fe1c,d1a7fe1c,2,4,0,0) at 
at netbsd:syscall+0xc8

After calling unp_setpeerlocks() uipc_usrreq(PRU_ACCEPT) will call
unp_setaddr() which, I think, expects the socket to be locked as
it does a sounlock()/solock() in a (probably rarely used) code path.
However, if unp_setpeerlocks() takes the new lock I'm can't find where
it would be released as do_sys_accept() releases the lock on so and not

Also, unp_setpeerlocks() is called from unp_connect2(PRU_CONNECT),
and the caller, unp_connect(), expects the sockets to be locked on
return as it does a sounlock(). If I got it right, this is true because
we do solock(so); unp_resetlock(so); in unp_connect(), thus
unp->unp_streamlock points to a locked lock.

I'm not sure how to sort this. Should uipc_usrreq(PRU_ACCEPT)
grab the unp->unp_streamlock before calling unp_setpeerlocks() and release
it after ?
