  Revise locking strategy used for UNIX domain sockets in order to improve
  - Add per-unpcb mutexes protecting unpcb connection state, fields, etc.
  - Replace global UNP mutex with a global UNP rwlock, which will protect the
    UNIX domain socket connection topology, v_socket, and be acquired
    exclusively before acquiring more than per-unpcb at a time in order to
    avoid lock order issues.
  In performance measurements involving MySQL, this change has little or no
  overhead on UP (+/- 1%), but leads to a significant (5%-30%) improvement in
  multi-processor measurements using the sysbench and supersmack benchmarks.
