## PRs worth fixing


## Features to finish/implement

   - variants of [[!template id=pr number=48214]] "clearing WDCTL_RST failed" during boot
   - ~~[[!template id=pr number=52783]] parallel fsck hangs during boot of 8.99.[5678]~~ (done)
   - [[!template id=pr number=52614]] qemu virtual CD-ROM reports read errors since recent wdc changes
   - [[!template id=pr number=53183]] System stops servicing I/O requests and eventually deadlocks
* UBC using direct map working on amd64 and alpha
   - [[!template id=pr number=53124]] (FFS is slow because pmap_update doesn't scale)
* XEN AVX working
   - [[!template id=pr number=50332]] AVX instructions don't work but OSXSAVE flag is set
* ~~~kASan for amd64~~~ (done)
* kASan for aarch64
* compiler-rt in the base with enabled features for Clang/LLVM
* address failing ptrace(2) tests, cover the remaining scenarios (there are planned ~2k ATF tests total for the elementary functionality)
* rework semantics of threading operations in ptrace(2)
* LVM mirror target
* add NVMM
* plug kernel pointer leaks

## Nice to have

* gcc 8+ from a sanitizers point of view
