 ok, the pagedaemon is definitely stuck since the pagedaemon counters aren't changing.

 the pagedaemon thread having a WAIT string of "tstile" is also
 consistent with it being stuck waiting for a lock.
 mi_switch() being the innermost stack frame is probably correct,
 but the trace is incomplete... there should be other functions
 in the trace after that, with uvm_pageout() being at the end.
 it will be very hard to figure out what's going on if ddb can't
 report complete stack traces.
 try getting a ddb stack trace for a few other threads and see if
 the same problem shows up with every thread.  (it probably will.)
 do you know how to figure out what's wrong with the m68k ddb
 stack trace code, or will you need some help with that?
