Re: NetBSD vs Solaris condvar semantics

   In the zfs code, where do they store the mutex needed for cv_wait?

In the two cases I have come across, dirent locks and range locks, a
number of condvars, one per dirent or one per range, share a common
mutex in some common enclosing object, such as a znode.  So, e.g., the
end of zfs_dirent_unlock looks like

cv_broadcast(&dl->dl_cv);       /* dl is a dirent lock stored in dzp.  */
kmem_free(dl, sizeof(*dl));
