when I get my lockups (had another this A.M.) the serial console line 
is non-responsive as well.  I cannot break into the kernel debugger at 
all.  There is no evidence of *anything* going bad other than the 
machine is totally unresponsive to network and console.  nothing is 
logged anywhere, including the BIOS.

when it happens it is during time of heavy I/O + network load.  I'm now 
running with debug.mpsafenet=0 to see if i'm tickling a bug in the 
network stack, given that I saw some bge0 timeouts earlier.
