It is fine to drop the process lock there, process cannot exit until its timers are cleared.

Upload the correct version of the patch.
PHOLD() there is not needed and is even wrong.

I believe there is a similar recursion with kqueue timers: kqtimer_proc_continue() holds the proc lock, and filt_timerexpire() may attempt to acquire it.

Handle recursion in filter_timerexpire()
