    procfs - Fix blocked lock condition
    * Two procfs races can result in a lock being blocked forever.  Rip out
      the old single-variable global procfs lock and per-node lock and replace
      with a normal lockmgr lock.
    * The original lock existed from a time when all of procfs was wrapped with
      a global lock.  This is no longer the case.
