100% great work Simon. Thanks!

I've got a question or two for you and Matt about this new threading.

1) How does this compare to NPTL (Native Posix Threading Library) in 
Linux? I dont mean performance wise but in technology?

2) i've read through couple of historic threads in which you (matt) say 
that ideally DragonFly should have M:NCPU threading and in another one 
Simon says 1:1 is what we want to have. Is 1:1 just a step before or has 
the M:N idea been abandoned. Not that it would suprise me as 
Linux,Sun,FreeBSD either have already or are abandoning M;N for 1:1 for 
performance and stability reasons.
