  Fix a major faux pas of mine. I was causing 2 very bad things to
  happen in interrupt context; 1) sleep locks, and 2) malloc/free
  1) is fixed by using spin locks instead.
  2) is fixed by preallocating a FIFO (implemented with a STAILQ)
     and using elements from this FIFO instead. This turns out
     to be rather fast.
