  Axe Giant from vn_fullpath(9). The vnode -> pathname lookup should be
  filesystem agnostic. We are not touching any file system specific functions
  in this code path. Since we have a cache lock, there is really no need to
  keep Giant around here.
  This eliminates Giant acquisitions for any syscall which is auditing pathnames.
