Every time it "appears" to be fixed, I can't get any kind of stability
with SMP, PREEMPTION, and SCHED_ULE; I'm certainly willing to try it
each time it looks to be fixed.

Just based on observation of "what of these things look stalled," not
meant as any slight to pjd.

The IPv6 routing error/INVARIANTS-crash should be in shortly.
The ugen detachment requires imp's testing; since he backed
out my previous suboptimal workaround, and then unbacked it out, it is
back to not being a crash again but could (interruptibly) hang an
application using the ugen device. The bpfdetach() is something that
should be fixed after rwatson's latest bpf.c delta, but needs
testing. The cbb problem problem is fixable by adding locking or by
adding ithread pinning, but I am unable to do anything about it.
