It means that it would be up to the file system. Presumably there
would also be VOP_LOCK() and VOP_UNLOCK() calls that FS-independent
code would use to access fields in the generic vnode structure that are
also accessed by the FS-specific code, because there would be some
instances where that would be necessary.
But all vnode operations would otherwise enter with unlocked vnodes and
exit with unlocked vnodes.
