   - Convert the global LK lock to a mutex.
   - Expand the scope of lk to cover not only interrupt races, but also
     top-half races, which includes many new uses over global top-half
     only data.
   - Get rid of interlocked_sleep() and use msleep or BUF_LOCK where
   - Use the lk mutex in place of the various hand rolled semaphores.
   - Stop dropping the lk lock before we panic.
   - Fix getdirtybuf() callers so that they reacquire access to whatever
     softdep datastructure they were inxpecting in the failure/retry
     case.  Previously, sleeps in getdirtybuf() could leave us with
     pointers to bad memory.
   - Update handling of ffs to be compatible with ffs locking changes.
