And switching to 4BSD from ULE takes the mean to 6426 q/s when combined
with netperf, smp, debug.mpsafenet=1, and adaptive mutexes. 

(Keeping in mind that this mysql benchmark is basically an
inter-thread/process kernel IPC benchmark using UNIX domain sockets, since
the workload is fairly minimal in userspace, this makes reasonable sense).

Now I'm really going to bed.
