    sys/kern             vfs_mount.c 
   - We can not hold a vnode lock while we do a lookup.  Search for and load
     modules prior to looking up the directory which we will cover to avoid
     this problem in mount.
   - We must hold the coveredvp locked before we can busy the mountpoint to
     prevent a lock order reversal with the vfs_busy() in lookup which holds
     the directory lock prior to doing a vfs_busy().  The directory lock is
     required to safely clear the v_mountedhere field on the directory.
