Did you get a crashdump (probably not.)  If you look at sched_lock, one of the
words will be a pointer to the process owning the lock in question. 
Unfortunately it's not the first word anymore (something I may change in the
future).  On the alpha it would be 'sched_lock+48'.  The pointer there points
to the process owning the lock (and you can look up the process via ps).  If
you have a crash dump then I have some gdb macros that make it easy to get a
backtrace of that process.  If not, then, well, it gets harder. :-P  Hmm, it
might be nice to be able to ask ddb to give a backtrace of any arbitrary
process.  Maybe I'll add a new command for that..

The trick is that we want to know who grabbed sched_lock where and then started
spinning with it.  Using KTR with KTR_LOCK turned on and using the 'show ktr'
command in ddb could also be used to see which process was the last to grab
sched_lock and where it was grabbed.
