Re: uvm/busy page deadlock in current (related to loading Raspberry Pi 3B+ Wi-Fi firmware, but more of a timing bug with the VM system)

eventually I realized that the aiodone_queue workqueue thread was
made redundant long ago... we no longer need this mechanism to hand off
any specific iodone processing to a worker thread because these days
all iodone processing is done in a (softint) worker thread.
I just commited a patch to remove this workqueue thread and associated code.
