It is probably the first commit.  Previously, the kern.proc.<pid> sysctl
would fail for zombies, so these tests poll that sysctl waiting for it to
fail to determine when a process has become a zombie.  I think the first
commit broke this as the sysctl now works for zombies so the tests hang
forever.  I could fix the tests to check for the status in the kinfo_proc.
I've no idea if there are other programs aside from tests that depend on
this behavior that are also broken though.  I feel like I copied that
approach from some other bit of code when writing these tests.
