Any chance we will see the following change in 7.x in the near future?  Per 
discussion on arch@, the goal is to remove as many non-MPSAFEty crutches from 
the tree as possible before 7.0:

peppercorn:~/freebsd/commit/src/sys/i4b> grep -ri giant .
./driver/i4b_ctl.c:     .d_flags =      D_NEEDGIANT,
./driver/i4b_rbch.c:    .d_flags =      D_NEEDGIANT,
./driver/i4b_tel.c:     .d_flags =      D_NEEDGIANT,
./driver/i4b_trace.c:   .d_flags =      D_NEEDGIANT,
./layer4/i4b_i4bdrv.c:  .d_flags =      D_NEEDGIANT,
