  Don't bother calling vslock() and vsunlock() if oldlen is zero.
  If vslock() returns ENOMEM, sysctl_wire_old_buffer() should set
  wiredlen to zero and return zero (success) so that the handler will
  operate according to sysctl(3):
       The size of the buffer is given by the location specified by
       oldlenp before the call, and that location gives the amount
       of data copied after a successful call and after a call that
       returns with the error code ENOMEM.
  The handler will return an ENOMEM error because the zero length
  buffer will overflow.
