Re: kern/15421 (vnode VOP()erations handle SAVESTART inconsistently)

While the PR is in principle correct, SAVESTART is unlikely to get
any divine interventions with the current lookup labyrinth and I'd
like to close this PR.  Do you want to use SAVESTART for something
besides rename?
As I recall (mostly from what I wrote in the PR),
I was trying to get a layered f/s working that
relied on SAVESTART.  However, since the UFS VOPs
don't use it consistently, and other f/s's don't
follow UFS's inconsistencies, I gave up.

Now, *why* that layered f/s cared about SAVESTART,
I just don't remember.  I mentioned ufs_rename only
to point out some gnarly use of SAVESTART that I
couldn't follow.

As for closing the PR because you want to,
well, I'm not doing kernel work anymore, so I
no longer have a practical use for a fix to this bug.

So...however you like, so far as I'm concerned.

Thanks, though, for following up!
