Architecture: arm
Machine: hpcarm
        Both the shark and hpcarm kernels cause hand lockups of the machine
        in what appears to be the process exit path.  Sometimes simple stuff
        like the on-boot fsck cause the hang, sometimes it requires something
        more 'vigorous' like a pkgsrc build, but when the machine does hang
        it doesn't respond to DDB or any interrupts.

        Both machines built from recent (< 2 days old) sources.  The hpcarm
        (a Jornada 728) seems more succeptible to the hang, but that machine
        has root at wd0 @ pcmcia vs. root on NFS for the shark, and I've also
        played with the hpcarm a bunch more, whereas the shark was sitting
        idle until a few days ago.

        Have enough processes start/exit and odds are the machine will hang.
        On the Jornada often running the rc.d scripts going to multi-user is
        enough... on the Shark I tickled it with a pkgsrc build (over NFS),
        though I have not set up a complete NFS environment so I have only
        booted it in single-user mode (root == arm destdir on the build
        host ;)).
