Ok folks, make sure you don't sup a snapshot from the middle of my commits
and you should have a solid working tree.

I am going to work on the version of ule with per-cpu locks (sched_smp) a 
little while longer before sending that out again.  I suspect this will 
address many of the scheduling related complaints and performance problems 
people have had.

Thanks,
Jeff
