Re: kern/41811 (mounting unconfigured vnd devices causes a hang)

Synopsis: mounting unconfigured vnd devices causes a hang

State-Changed-From-To: open->analyzed
State-Changed-When: Tue, 04 Aug 2009 12:57:57 +0300
This is a combinaton of the new module autoload code doing vnode 
unlock in spec_open() and the historic behaviour of file systems   
not locking the device vnode mounttime due the possibility of
deadlock.  In other words, it's another fine lose/lose mess someone 
else will be happy to deal with.
