 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  sborrill
 Date:          Sat Nov 28 18:59:11 UTC 2009
 Modified Files:
        src/sys/kern [netbsd-5]: vfs_subr.c
 Log Message:
 Pull up the following revisions(s) (requested by bouyer in ticket #1171):
        sys/kern/vfs_subr.c:    revision 1.392
 Previous caused a deadlock with layered FS: the vrele thread can sleep on
 the vnode lock, while vget is sleeping on the VI_INACTNOW flag (or the vget
 caller is looping on vget returning failure because of the VI_INACTNOW
 flag). With layered FSes, the upper and lower vnodes share the same lock, so
 the vget() caller above can be already holding the vnode lock.
 Fix by dropping VI_INACTNOW before sleeping on the vnode lock in
 vrelel(), and check the ref count again once we have the lock. If the
 vnode has more than one reference, don't VOP_INACTIVE it.
 Fix PR kern/42318 and PR kern/42377
