    sys/kern             vfs_lookup.c 
  MFC r1.90, r1.91:
  > - Lock giant when assigning ni_vp and keep vfslocked state valid.
  > - Consistently track ni_dvp and ni_vp with dvfslocked and vfslocked rather
  >   than trying to optimize it into a single lock.  This adds more calls to
  >   lock giant with non smpsafe filesystems but is the only way to reliably
  >   hold the correct lock.
  > - Remove an invalid assert in the mountedhere case in lookup and fix the
  >   code to properly deal with the scenario.  We can actually have a lookup
  >   that returns dp == dvp with mountedhere set with certain unmount races.
