At least one other BSD-family VFS (the one in XNU) completely eliminated locking of vnodes at the VFS layer (it's all pushed into the file system back-ends who now have more control over their own locking requirements). It does have some additional complexities around reference / busy counting and vnode identity, but it works very well in practice.
