Hi All,
   here's a revised version of my initial patch.

- I've removed the try_spinlock code;
- As an alternative to duplicating lots of function to add mread calls 
in place of references, I've added setjmp(bus_error_jmp) {} around what 
seem more likely to be critical areas.
- cleaned up spacing
- changed most of the function names to be xmon_xxx instead of wm_xxx.

these functions show up under a submenu 'w'.   use "w?" at xmon> prompt 
to get the help blurb.
