    sys/kern             subr_sleepqueue.c 
   - At the top of sleepq_catch_signals() lock the thread and check TDF_NEEDSIGCHK
     before doing the very expensive cursig() and related locking.  NEEDSIGCHK
     is updated whenever our signal mask change or when a signal is delivered and
     should be sufficient to avoid the more expensive tests.  This eliminates
     another source of PROC_LOCK contention in multithreaded programs.
