    sys/kern             subr_lock.c 
    sys/sys              lock_profile.h 
  Currently the LO_NOPROFILE flag (which is masked on upper level code by
  per-primitive macros like MTX_NOPROFILE, SX_NOPROFILE or RW_NOPROFILE) is
  not really honoured. In particular lock_profile_obtain_lock_failure() and
  lock_profile_obtain_lock_success() are naked respect this flag.
  The bug leads to locks marked with no-profiling to be profiled as well.
  In the case of the clock_lock, used by the timer i8254 this leads to
  unpredictable behaviour both on amd64 and ia32 (double faults panic,
  sudden reboots, etc.). The amd64 clock_lock is also not marked as
  not profilable as it should be.
  Fix these bugs adding proper checks in the lock profiling code and at
  clock_lock initialization time.
