   - Reassign the thread queue lock to newtd prior to switching.  Assigning
     after the switch leads to a race where the outgoing thread still owns
     the local queue lock while another cpu may switch it in.  This race
     is only possible on machines where cpu_switch can take significantly
     longer on different cpus which in practice means HTT machines with
     unfair thread scheduling algorithms.
