mpi@ is asking for tests of a new UVM-fault unlocking diff for #OpenBSD. The long-term goal here is to make the system run faster, especially with multi-threaded applications (web browsers and such).

If you are running -current on a multiprocessor machine on amd64 or i386, apply this patch to your kernel, then just keep doing whatever you are doing and report details about any kernel panics you see back to Martin or to the tech@ mailing list. Thanks!

- allowing all printing ascii characters
- allowing unicode
- normalizing unicode using NFKC or NFKD prior to hashing
- using a password-strength meter (presumably based on estimated entropy) instead of having composition rules
- not forcing periodic password changes

Took a break from reading Discworld books to finally read Ed Mastery. Pretty sure I'm now better prepared for success on my new (SRE) team at work.
