Here are the questions related to vnode/vfs.
1. Each of the filesystems i.e nfs/ufs maintain thier respective
inode hash tables. Isn't it better to have a global hash table at the
vnode layer ?. This will reduce code duplication and also better
utilization of hash tables. Am I missing something here ?
2. Can VOP_LOCK/VOP_UNLOCK be implemented at the vnode level ?
3. what is the difference between VOP_INACTIVE and VOP_RECLAIM ?.
The sequence of calls seem's to be VOP_INACTIVE -> vgone ->
Thanks for your responses
