 kern/vfs_getcwd.c in getcwd_scandir calls VOP_LOOKUP for ".." to strip
 off the chroot path from paths returned to programs inside the chroot.
 This fails with EACCES, but should succeed.
 The reason is that in some cases, this is called with the pbulk user
 credentials and fails, because pbulk cannot enter /archive/sandboxes;
 in some cases it was previously called in another way with root
 credentials, and the call originating from the pbulk user uses the
 cached entry and everything works fine.
