    sys/dev/sound/pcm    sndstat.c 
  Convert sndstat_lock from a mutex to an sx lock.  sndstat_read()
  holds sndstat_lock across a call to uiomove(), which is not legal
  to do with a  mutex because of the possibility that the data transfer
  could sleep because of a page fault.  It is not possible to just
  unlock the mutex for the uiomove() call without introducing another
  locking mechanism to prevent the body of sndstat_read() from being
  re-entered.  Converting sndstat_lock to an sx lock is the least
  complicated change.
  This is a candidate for RELENG_5.
