  Change unp_mtx to supporting recursion, and do not drop the unp_mtx over
  sonewconn() in unp_connect().  This avoids a race that occurs due to
  v_socket being an uncounted reference, as the lock was being released in
  order to call sonewconn(), which otherwise recurses into the UNIX domain
  socket code via pru_attach, as well as holding the lock over a sleeping
  memory allocation in uipc_attach().  Switch to a non-sleeping memory
  allocation during UNIX domain socket attach.
  This fix non-ideal in that it requires enabling recursion, but is a much
  smaller change than moving to using true references for v_socket.  The
  reported panic occurs in unp_connect() following the return of
