That is what the manpage says, so is this a known bug? Is there a PR
associated with it?
What sort of information would I need to collect in order to help the
developers nail this?
I've already isolated to which lockinit() (there are two) (line 538) in
the vfs_subr.c but I have
no way to finding the vnode address from the debugger.
What would be a good price to put on this bug's head? $1000? $1500?
With access to a machine
with crash dumps. Its not an easy job, I know. There are very few
people who could actually
identify the problem let alone code a fix.
