 Thanks for the pointer - which I knew about, but unfortunately found out
 too late that the kernel needs to be compiled with options STACK and/or
 options DDB/KDB for this to work.
 Could this information be added to that page?
 I already recompiled the kernel, but are ambivalent about whether I
 should now hope to see the deadlock again... ;-)
 One more thing: Could you point me to the SVN revision in head and/or
 stable/9 which presumably contains the (partial) fix?
