Here is where the extra ADVLOCK happen:
sys_exit -> exit1 -> fd_free -> fd_close -> VOP_ADVLOCK
In a nutshell, NetBSD clears locks on all file descriptor when a process
exit, that include read-only descriptors, and FUSE filesystems seem to
be unconfortable with that.
I am not sure of where this should be fixed: should we avoid unlocking
read-only files in fd_close()? That seems a good idea performance-wise.
Or is it a desirable behavior on native filesystems while being a bug
for FUSE filesystems? In that case, it means I need to filter the
operation in perfused.
