  MFp4: Fix two bugs causing possible deadlocks or panics, and one nit:
  - Emulate lock draining (LK_DRAIN) in null_lock() to avoid deadlocks
    when the vnode is being recycled.
  - Don't allow null_nodeget() to return a nullfs vnode from the wrong
    mount when multiple nullfs's are mounted. It's unclear why these checks
    were removed in null_subr.c 1.35, but they are definitely necessary.
    Without the checks, trying to unmount a nullfs mount will erroneously
    return EBUSY, and forcibly unmounting with -f will cause a panic.
  - Bump LOG2_SIZEVNODE up to 8, since vnodes are >256 bytes now. The old
    value (7) didn't cause any problems, but made the hash algorithm
  These changes fix nullfs enough that a parallel buildworld succeeds.
