Is gdb good enough in FreeBSD that you can break to the kernel
debugger with GDB enabled, and dump out the stacks for all
threads currently in the kernel for all processes?

The way to find this, if it's a threads related issue, is to do
exactly that, and then look to se if there's something like a
close in one thread of an fd being used in a blocking operation
in another thread.
