    kernel - Fix excessive ipiq recursion (4)
    * Possibly the smoking gun.  There was a case where the lwkt_switch()
      code could wind up looping excessively calling lwkt_getalltokens()
      if td_contended went negative, and td_contended on interrupt threads
      could in-fact go negative.
      This stopped IPIs in their tracks.
    * Fix by making td_contended unsigned, causing the comparions to work
      in all situations.  And add a missing assignment to 0 for the
      preempted thread case.
