 Indeed, I see you're right; Solaris doesn't pass those vnodes from the
 fs-independent code, so nfsrename has to do the lookup itself; that it
 happens to be done in more or less the same place in the control flow as
 my addition is somewhat coincidental.

 I've tested it, and it works for me.  (Also, FWIW, I've reproduced the
 original problem against an NFS server with ~no other load; there was
 one case where it wasn't happening, but that's clearly not the reason.)
