 I saw when pounding on it that from time to time the whole thing would
 stop for a while, then (maybe after a timeout somewhere) would resume
 I'm pretty sure that isn't either anything I did or a locking issue;
 hangs from locking issues tend to be permanent.

 Possibly; I'm not sure.
 Another candidate is the weird raidframe throughput problems mrg was
 seeing and possibly also some of the NFS hangs I was seeing a few
 weeks ago(*); and maybe some other related phenomena that have been
 reported. It looks as if maybe there's a problem where under some
 circumstances callouts stop getting processed... I think there's
 discussion on tech-kern and it's probably best to look there.
