I too have run lmbench earlier this week, with no PAGE_BUF_META,
and things ran fine. Kip, do you have kdb on? If so, try breaking
in with either "Pause/Break" key on a real console or <cntrl>-a  on
the serial console. If that doesn't work, you can also give it an NMI
if your system supports it ... NMI is usually a separate button similar
to reset.
