  Make uma_mtx MTX_RECURSE.  Here's why:
  The general UMA lock is a recursion-allowed lock because
  there is a code path where, while we're still configured
  to use startup_alloc() for backend page allocations, we
  may end up in uma_reclaim() which calls zone_foreach(zone_drain),
  which grabs uma_mtx, only to later call into startup_alloc()
  because while freeing we needed to allocate a bucket.  Since
  startup_alloc() also takes uma_mtx, we need to be able to
  recurse on it.
  This exact explanation also added as comment above mtx_init().
