commit 6179d4f3f16b482e364e1bd90002e52b7bee9089

    Fix vkernel issues - enable ithread preemption, races, and more.
    signalintr() was improperly entering a critical section, preventing
    sched_ithd() from being able to preempt the current thread.  Adjust
    so the code matches the pc32 code.
    lwp0 was being assigned cpu_heavy_switch instead of cpu_lwkt_switch,
    which works fine on pc32 but blows up the vkernel if process 0 gets
    preempted, because vkernel LWKT processes are not assigned vmspaces.
    Properly use cpu_lwkt_switch() to fix the problem.
    We were not checking for pending reschedule requests when the
    vmspace_ctl() call got interrupted by a signal.  NOTE:  There is
    still a race after the check prior to re-entry into vmspace_ctl()
    which needs to be closed.
