pmap_lazyfix: spun for 50000000 message pops
out now and again.
I can see this in sys/i386/i386 in pmap_lazyfix().
(non PAE case). 

Is it common for this to hit? It appears to call
ia32_pause(), decrement, and loop until a global
var lazywait is set.

Should i be concerned? Is this a common occurrence?
