Re: Vnode API change: add global vnode cache

   Should be fine, but once tmpfs is switched to use vcache, it might become
   a little bit more visible for some workloads..

Why switch tmpfs to use vcache?  That would add memory and time
overhead for no reason.  struct tmpfs_node already has a map from key
to vnode -- the tn_vnode field.  No need to manage an rb tree to
accomplish the same thing.
