	I was reading the manpages for vfs stuff and I have some
	comments on the content.

	In vfsops(0) vfs_export_lookup, there is spelling error:
	verigfy -> verify (see patch).

	And in vnodeops(9) I found the following items that would need

	VOP_READDIR, cookies can be used from emulation layer too
	(linux and sunos).

	VOP_ABORTOP, needs to be implemented, or call genfs_abortop.
	is used to release allocated cnp. So it should probably say
	"abort pending namei operation and free resources".

	VOP_BMAP, what does bnp do ? (return physical block)
	-1 is no mapping (a hole).

	For these, I leave it up to someone native/better english
	speaker/writer. From experience I know someone else should
	write them, otherwise you just need to rewrite the whole text.

	man vfsops
	man vnodeops
