System: NetBSD valkyrie 7.99.1 NetBSD 7.99.1 (VALKYRIE) #17: Wed Oct 14 03:21:03 EDT 2015  dholland@valkyrie:/usr/src/sys/arch/amd64/compile/VALKYRIE amd64
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64

In ufs-related filesystems newer than sometime in the 80s, symlink
text that can be stuffed into the direct/indirect block pointer space
in the inode is kept there and not in a separate block.

This is great and all, but it means that symlinks longer than this
limit use a variety of different code paths and these are not
exercised in the regression tests. It turned out tonight that one of
these in LFS has had a broken assertion since March.



Add some more cases to t_vnops.c. Note that for LFS64 and FFSv2 a
large symlink needs to be more than 120 bytes, and preferably more
than 136.
