    padlock - Rework locking
    * Change lockmgr to spinlock (FreeBSD used to use rwlocks for this),
      since there's no blocking in the locked sections.
    * Fix several bugs where previously a shared lock was held although an
      exclusive lock was required.
    * Add a missing unlock in padlock_detach.
