Actually, now that all interrupt threads are in a single process, it should be 
a per-thread flag.  It was only ever intended to mask softclock since that is 
what did the load calculation on 4BSD so that 4BSD wouldn't always return a 
load of 1 even on an idle box (since softclock was always running when the 
load was checked).
