Thanks for the retroactive review; it's good too.

The WUNLOCK was added in r168561 without comment.  Removing it seems
like it would work.  It doesn't cause any new LORs or WITNESS
warnings.  And I can no longer reproduce the panic in lacp_req.
However, it doesn't fix another panic in lagg_port_ioctl line 825 (my
patch didn't either).  Do you have any good ideas what to do about
