While debugging a completely unrelated issue, I'm getting a witness lock 
from the most recent RELENG_6 em(intel) driver in CVS:

em0: Link is Down
em0: link state changed to DOWN
acquiring duplicate lock of same type: "network driver"
 1st em0 @ dev/em/if_em.c:1464
 2nd em0 @ dev/em/if_em.c:1492

--- trap 0x1, eip = 0, esp = 0xe35ead6c, ebp = 0 ---

The Locks are "EM_CORE_LOCK" and "EM_TX_LOCK" from if_em.h ... It 
doesn't appear that the locks are around the same mutex.
