Edit subr_autoconf.c and set the number of threads to 1.

int interrupt_config_threads = 8;
int mountroot_config_threads = 2;

Or you can patch them in ddb with boot -d

Also you can add DEBUG_AUTOCONF in current, which prints the name of
the deferred driver as well as the count ot the deferred mutex. For
even better success, boot -1
