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).
