It's not in the lookup code.  ls -l makes it panic, plain ls doesn't,
so it's in getattr. 

It's not new in 1.92, it's there in 1.91.

It's only in the ipsecsp dir, I was mistaken. ipsecsa dir is fine.

The code in Pipsecsp case of readdir is finding bogus SPD entries, it seems:

dan@tv [19:21][304]/kern# ls ipsecsp
16384 16385 16386 16387
dan@tv [19:23][305]/kern# setkey -DP
No SPD entries.

Interesting numbers :)

Probably the same error leads to them being found again when I later
getattr on them, rather than being rejected with ENOENT, but then
the garbage inside is used.
