yes it is smp. i should have thought to test it. i'm booting now with nosmp and will follow up with some results shortly if it crashes, or tomorrow if it doesn't.
Is it an SMP machine?
I checked in some changes to the locking scheme. Which could cause such
behaviour. If it is not an SMP then locks have nothing to do with it.
