Does that involve snapshots or not? Without snapshots, genfs only has to
take the wapbl lock in the case of GOP_ALLOC in VOP_GETPAGES. If you can
get it in this situation, please provide the full stack traces of the
involved lwps. For snapshots, the real problem is that the strategy of
fss doesn't handle WAPBL as it should.  It seems to somewhat work, but I
can't stress it much.
