    Interesting.  As far as I can tell, this one does not apply to us
    because we use a critical section in our resetpriority() function
    and all operations in curproc on a particular cpu are always forwarded
    to that cpu.  

    Also, the scheduler, stat, and hard clocks on DragonFly are distributed
    to all cpus, not run on just one cpu, so a critical section ought to be
    sufficient for us.
