Dunno what version of -CURRENT you are using, but in theory John's recent
mutex class commits should help with that by reducing the number of locks
that WITNESS has to treat as unique. If this is still happening on a
-CURRENT from the last two days, you may want to drop him an e-mail. The
output of vmstat -m might also be useful, since locks are usually
associated with structures, and some indication of the quantity of
structures should help identify what locks are being over-used. The
output from the ddb 'show witness' command may also be useful.
