A few minor commits and DragonFly master is now able to run on the new
threadripper.  The cpu is a real beast, packing 32 cores and 64 threads.
It blows away our dual-core Xeon to the tune of being +50% faster in
concurrent compile tests, and it also blows away our older 4-socket Opteron
(which we call 'Monster') by about the same margin.  It's an impressive CPU.

For now the new beast is going to be used to help us improve I/O
performance through the filesystem, further SMP work (but DFly scales
pretty well to 64 threads already), and perhaps some driver to work to
support the 10gbe on the mobo.  Fortunately the mobo I have also has two
1gig NICs that we already support well).
