realpath(3) calls getcwd(3) (which devolves to __getcwd(2) I think) once per
invocation (and that already did not lock the vnode). It then calls lstat()
for each component in the path. The lstat() calls should be using shared
locks (at least with the recent changes to use shared lookups for UFS in
HEAD). I imagine the bottleneck is more with lstat() than getcwd(3).
Neither is helped by the specific changes above.
