Just committed the new file system suspension API. It replaces the
current vn_start_write/vn_finished_write API. The suspension helpers
are now put into file system specific operations. Therefore snapshots
of non-ffs file systems are currently unsupported.
Those using file system snapshots are encouraged to try this new API.
Take your favorite -current kernel and build with `options NEWVNGATE'.
Plan is to make the new API default in mid february 2007.
If the machine deadlocks and you have DDB compiled in, please
`call fstrans_dump' from DDB before reboot.
If you encounter problems, please send-pr with subject `fstrans ...'.
