    sys/sys              systm.h 
  Since cdev mutex is after system map mutex in global lock order, free()
  shall not be called while holding cdev mutex. devfs_inos unrhdr has cdev as
  mutex, thus creating this LOR situation.
  Postpone calling free() in kern/subr_unit.c:alloc_unr() and nested functions
  until the unrhdr mutex is dropped. Save the freed items on the ppfree list
  instead, and provide the clean_unrhdrl() and clean_unrhdr() functions to
  clean the list.
  Call clean_unrhdrl() after devfs_create() calls immediately before
  dropping cdev mutex. devfs_create() is the only user of the alloc_unrl()
  in the tree.
