So you get a kernel thread that's taken a lock and will busy-loop and not free
it. What sort of lockup do you expect will be detected from this? Would the
results be any different if you didn't take a lock before busy-looping?

For bonus points - what additional things have to happen before a livelock

And before a deadlock happens?
