I did find one more problem... hopefully no more than that.

This seems to be connected to rmdir, not rename. The panic has (so
far) always occurred in a process doing only rmdirs and no renames.

I've spotted two problems in ufs_rmdir but neither of them could be
causing this; as far as I can tell by inspection the locking in both
sys_rmdir and ufs_rmdir is fine... plus those aren't shared locks.

Anyone have any theories or guesses?
