 This fix looks wrong.
 If it is possible for the (last) reference to go away while vfs_busy() is
 running it is also unsafe to increment the reference counter here as it
 could be zero and be freed from vfs_destroy().
 Do you have stack traces from the threads running vfs_busy()
 and vfs_destroy()?
