Could you please repeat your testing with 4.X?  I'm quite sure you'll
see a much different picture.  FreeBSD 5.X's state of locking isn't
ready for production or benchmarking.  If, however, you are ready to
profile a 5.X kernel, those results would be very interesting to the
people on this list. -sc
