I have two patches: http://people.freebsd.org/~davidxu/vm86.diff http://people.freebsd.org/~davidxu/vm86_2.diff the first patch is to keep vm86lock as a sleep lock, and allow the thread calling vm86 bios could be preempted, but still only one thread can call vm86 bios. so if we want a sleep mutex in trap() code execute path, it hasn't problem.
the second patch try to keep source code modification minimal, change vm86lock to spin lock, don't allow to be preempted when calling vm86 bios, but if someday someone wants a sleep mutex in trap() code execute path, it would have trouble. you can select one of them to apply. I am not maintainer of VM86 code, so I have trouble to commit this patch unless someone allow me to do.
