CVS commit: src/sys/kern

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.
