 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  snj

 Modified Files:
        src/sys/kern [netbsd-5]: vfs_subr.c
        src/sys/sys [netbsd-5]: vnode.h
 Log Message:
 Pull up following revision(s) (requested by rmind in ticket #863):
        sys/sys/vnode.h: revision 1.207
        sys/kern/vfs_subr.c: revision 1.379
 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.
