Bug fixes MFCd to the release branch need some testing.

    Before I bump the sub-version and slip the release tag it would
    be nice if someone running RELEASE on an SMP box could test 
    "DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2" (not the official DragonFly_RELEASE_1_2_Slip tag).

    I don't happen to have an SMP box running release at the moment, only
    a UP box, so I can't test the token fixes.

    Basically all you need to do to test is to run a buildworld -j 8 in a 
    loop for a day or so, to make sure I haven't done anything aggregious
    in MFCing the recent bug fixes.

    In anycase, I will bump the sub-version on the release and slip the
    official tag on Sunday so people running the release have the benefit
    of all the recent SMP bug fixes, the pty-closing-bug fix, a filesystem
    assertion, and some of the 3ware fixes (but note we haven't MFC'd the
    major driver update yet).
