I've just committed an NFS change that touches a large set of files.
The change is a new directory caching method, and associated changes
to handle 64bit offset cookies better. THis solves the 'double
entry' problem people were seeing.

Also related is the addition of a getdents() system call, obsoleting
getdirentries(). This should hardly effect people, since it is
only called from below the directory(3) functions inside libc.

Please make sure that you:

	* make includes in /usr/src/sys
	* Rebuild and install mount_nfs and mountd
	* Rebuild and install a new kernel.
	* Rebuild libc.

If you are seeing any strange behavior with NFS directories, please
let me know.
