Yes, this would probably work. But I find it better in the long
term to have a separate thread for sodopendfree() and wake it up from the
place where we enqueue mbufs in the pendfree queue (rather than hijacking
existing threads which requires some code analisis to see if it's
OK to take locks and sleep here ...)
