After sysctl vm.idlezero_enable=1,
many processes wait for [*vm page queue free mutex] and don't respond.

It seems that the vm_pagezero() thread loops in vm_phys_zero_pages_idle() forever with mtx_lock(&vm_page_queue_free_mtx).

sysctl vm.idlezero_enable=1
find / -type f -print | xargs grep -l hogehogehoge
