Hi folks,

For the records, I was running some tests yesterday on top of a
9.0-RELEASE, amd64, kernel when the box hanged. At the time of the
hang, the box was running a process with about 2800 threads with heavy
IPC between 1400 writers and 1400 readers. The box was in single user
mode (/bin/sh coming from FreeBSD 7.4-STABLE). Here is the beginning
of the dmesg:
