I had a brief look at <URL:http://aqua.pixnet.tw/~jnlin/textdump/event3/1230/>

msgbuf.txt contained info about some nfs vnodes locked by pid 27645.

It looks like thread suspension is broken for the SINGLE_NO_EXIT case.

Threads performing an interruptable sleep are suspended, even while holding
other resources (e.g. vnode locks).

Threads performing a non-interruptable sleep, waiting for resources held by the
suspended threads are not suspended.

The thread that started the suspension is not woken up since some of the
other threads are not yet suspended.
