Yes, sorry. It got fixed in the below patch which I was about to share before
you sent this email. However, it still has (not yet) addressed the new
comments from you we have to discuss (will reply to that email).

Its purely a dirty test patch but it makes Aubrey's deadlock go away.
Basically, I moved the waiting code to prepare_exit_to_usermode() which
removes the lock vs wait dependencies. I will work on moving the code to the
right place based on the suggestions in the other email.

thanks,
