Ok. I did not add the per-CPU caching stuff, so I was not aware of this
behavior... but it seems wrong, and I think it should be changed. It can be
very expensive (probably much more expensive than taking an uncontested mutex)
to check for stale objects. And, as I said before, this is different than how
Solaris's kmem_cache works, and kmem_cache is what pool_cache was modeled after
when I originally wrote it.
