    sys/kern             kern_exit.c 
  Move cpu_exit() earlier in exit1() to close a race between
  SIGCHLD/kevent(2) notification of process termination and wait().  Now
  we no longer drop locks between sending the notification and marking
  the process as a zombie.  Previously, if another process attempted to do
  a wait() with W_NOHANG after receiving a SIGCHLD or kevent and locked
  the process while the exiting thread was in cpu_exit(), then wait() would
  fail to find the process, which is quite astonishing to the process
  calling wait().
