=>I think you should be able to duplicate this condition by something like

=>	mv foo bar
=>at least, that should duplicate your stack trace.

   It did duplicate the condition.

   I knew that looked screwy...

   Well, it fixed the immediate problem, anyway. The above example
is fixed and the build completes normally. I haven't worked out
all the details, but I think it fixes the original problem, too,
since we've eliminated the bogus call path, ufs_rename -> lfs_remove
-> lfs_set_dirop -> lfs_reserve -> lfs_reservebuf, which updates
the counter. I didn't see the lfs_fits_buf warning during the build,
either, so I think we can call it fixed for now.
