I just got another deadlock today.
It was a bit better compared to the previous ones: the ssh connection I had
in a xterm was still available; screen(1) was running and it was possible
to change virtual terminals with Ctrl-n.
All other inputs were not taken into account.
The console had a bunch of the customary
"Debug: pmap_interlock 00010003"
messages. The last 4 lines were
"bio_page_alloc: WARNING emergency page allocation"
