Re: Vnode API change: VOP_LOOKUP

   As announced some weeks ago here comes the API change to VOP_LOOKUP:

     Change vnode operation lookup to return the resulting vnode *vpp locked.
     Change cache_lookup() to return an unlocked vnode.

One more question:  Are you planning to change relookup to return the
result unlocked, too?  That will enable us to get rid of some ick in
genfs_rename users.
