Subject: PR/19110 CVS commit: src/sys/kern
Date: Sun, 2 Oct 2011 13:00:07 +0000

 Module Name:   src
 Committed By:  hannken
 Date:          Sun Oct  2 13:00:07 UTC 2011
 Modified Files:
        src/sys/kern: vfs_vnode.c
 Log Message:
 The path getnewvnode()->getcleanvnode()->vclean()->VOP_LOCK() will panic
 if the vnode we want to clean is a layered vnode and the caller already
 locked its lower vnode.
 Change getnewvnode() to always allocate a fresh vnode and add a helper
 thread (vdrain) to keep the number of allocated vnodes within desiredvnodes.
 Rename getcleanvnode() to cleanvnode() and let it take a vnode from the
 lists, clean and free it.
