:while looking around on chlamydia why it is so slow I found a dozen 
:find(1)s stuck in state "clock", and all periodic scripts etc dangling 
:on that.  Dmesg tells me:
:Aug 28 03:01:04 chlamydia kernel: [diagnostic] cache_lock: blocked on 
:0xc9630970 "ttyp5"
:the system is

:Has this been fixed since?

    I believe it was fixed.  I'm not entirely sure if it was MFC'd but
    I think it was.

:Talking of -RELEASE, Matt, do you intend to MFC some more fixes?  Just 
:curious because the last commit (4 weeks ago) to subvers stated
:NOTE: As of this commit there are several more bug fixes under test,
:including an important softupdates bug fix, and the release subversion 
:will likely be bumped again in ~2 weeks after testing has been completed 
:on those fixes.

    There are a bunch.  I think the softupdates bug that comment is refering
    to was fixed in -RELEASE (, on August 5th, but we haven't 
    slipped the tag yet on it.  There are a few more bug fixes, such as the
    one I just fixed for NFS servers, and one currently under test for
    ffs_balloc(), which I want to throw in before I bump the sub version

    Once every one or two months I usually do a run through the CVS logs
    to determine what to MFC, MFC it, then bump the subvers on the release
