I've been playing with it, and while it works nice when working on a small
amount of files, it often locks up(ctrl+T or ctrl+C won't work) during
a task like this (I've made sure that this has no problem writing on a UFS
# cpdup /usr/pkgsrc/. /mnt/HAMMER/.

I added a few kprintf()'s around tsleep()'s and wakeup()'s in
hammer_subs.c, and I found that it is often the case that it locked up,
tsleep() won't return (because I didn't see the kprintf() message after it)
after being woken up by hammer_lock_downgrade().  ctrl+alt+esc mostly
works, but it takes very long time to drop into DDB once it locked up.
