  Added files:
    sys/kern             kern_umtx.c 
    sys/sys              umtx.h 
   - Add an api for doing smp safe locks in userland.
   - umtx_lock() is defined as an inline in umtx.h.  It tries to do an
     uncontested acquire of a lock which falls back to the _umtx_lock()
     system-call if that fails.
   - umtx_unlock() is also an inline which falls back to _umtx_unlock() if the
     uncontested unlock fails.
   - Locks are keyed off of the thr_id_t of the currently running thread which
     is currently just the pointer to the 'struct thread' in kernel.
   - _umtx_lock() uses the proc pointer to synchronize access to blocked thread
     queues which are stored in the first blocked thread.
