The key commit from my perspective was the flush of the icache on
secondary processor spinup.  That made SMP spinup on JS2x quite solid,
in my experiments.

The function you are talking about is relevant when destroying a domain
and loading a new one, I believe.  Note that the tests reported in this
email only create domains, because I knew that the invocation you are
talking about had not gone in yet.

Transient is how my tool classifies things like the network going down
for five minutes at 3:00 a.m., which causes TFTP to fail.
