What lock is supposed to protect ip->i_flags? A quick survey of
related code suggests that it's supposed to be lfs_lock.

...However, it looks as if that and quite a few other uses of
ip->i_flags ought to be ip->i_flag instead. ip->i_flags holds the
chflags() flags; the inode state flags are supposed to be in

It looks as if all uses of IN_PAGING use ip->i_flags, so it's at least
consistent, but it's wrong. There's also one reference to IN_CLEANING
in ip->i_flags, which has no chance of ever working.

Using lfs_lock to protect either of these isn't consistent with the
ufs code though, AFAIK, so I don't think it's really safe

(The existence of i_flag and i_flags members in the same structure
seems to date to the ffsv2 import, but it's sort of been this way via
macros since 4.4. Definitely brickworthy.)
