Panic on -CURRENT after LDT changes

On a -CURRENT build today with Jeff's LDT locking changes, I get an
instant, reproducible panic by doing:

# cd /usr/src
# make -DNO_CLEAN buildworld

Backing out the LDT changes to /sys/i386/i386/*machdep* corrects the
problem.  Here is a dmesg and backtrace.  In frame 6, it appears mdp is
NULL (i.e. td->td_proc->p_md = 0x0).

Unread portion of the kernel message buffer:
kernel trap 12 with interrupts disabled
