ok, I dug it to 9e7b4d8d6fa8dc9433c1e60d4bd6717aec2f5296

Here you add acquire/release the vector lock inside
multipathd/main.c:reconfigure(), but as seen in the following LCKDBG
trace, the lock is already acquired in
multipathd/main.c:uxsock_trigger()

Hence the lock -> lock = hang.

I commited and pushed a partial revert of
9e7b4d8d6fa8dc9433c1e60d4bd6717aec2f5296

But maybe you'd rather see us stop acquiring the lock from
uxsock_trigger() to acquire more selectively in the functions called
from there ... Please comment.
