Paul Goyette and I are getting closer to having ported a macfs
to NetBSD. Besides the requisite debugging, we are running into
a problem with inode_uncache_try() being undefined, and are
wondering what to do about it.

The code comes from Mach 3.0, and the call happens in an inode (vnode)
flush routine. The comments around the code talking about flushing an
inode when it was given a device as a parameter.  This call is wrapped
by a "see if the inode pager can uncache it" quote.

Any suggestions as to what this thing is trying to do, and how
to best do it under NetBSD will be appreciated. It is the
last link error we have. :-)

Take care,
