From The Jargon File (version 4.4.7, 29 Dec 2003) :

  spl
   /S?P?L/
  
      [abbrev, from Set Priority Level] The way traditional Unix kernels
      implement mutual exclusion by running code at high interrupt levels. Used
      in jargon to describe the act of tuning in or tuning out ordinary
      communication. Classically, spl levels run from 1 to 7; ?Fred's at spl 6
      today? would mean that he is very hard to interrupt. ?Wait till I finish
      this; I'll spl down then.? See also interrupts locked out.
