    kernel - Fix kqueue race with NOTE_EXIT
    * Fix a kqueue race where the process receiving a NOTE_EXIT can go
      away while the NOTE_EXIT is being delivered.
    * Add a required PHOLD/PRELE since knote_remove() can block.
    * Properly return on-zero if KN_DETACHED is set at the end of knote_release()
      so the caller knows to restart the list scan.
