 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  yamt
 Date:          Sat May 16 08:29:54 UTC 2009
 Modified Files:
        src/sys/kern: vfs_subr.c
        src/sys/sys: vnode.h
 Log Message:
 put a flag bit into v_usecount to prevent vtryget during getcleanvnode.
 this fixes the following deadlock.
        a thread doing getcleanvnode:
        pick a vnode
        acqure v_interlock
        call vclean
                now, another thread doing cache_lookup:
                picks the vnode
                vtryget succeed
                vn_lock succeed
        now in vclean:
        set VI_XLOCK (too late to be noticed by the competing thread)
        wait on the vnode lock (this might violate locking order)
 the use of a flag bit was suggested by Andrew Doran.  PR/41374.
