  Modified files:
    sys/nfsserver        nfs.h nfs_serv.c nfs_srvsubs.c 
  Push Giant a bit further off the NFS server in a number of straight
  forward cases by converting from unconditional acquisition of Giant
  around vnode operations to conditional acquisition:
  - Remove nfsrv_access_withgiant(), and cause nfsrv_access() to now
    assert that Giant will be held if it is required for the vnode.
  - Add nfsrv_fhtovp_locked(), which will drop the NFS server lock if
    required, and modify nfsrv_fhtovp() to conditionally acquire
    Giant if required.
  - In the VOP's not dealing with more than one vnode at a time (i.e.,
    not involving a lookup), conditionally acquire Giant.
  This removes Giant use for MPSAFE file systems for a number of quite
  important RPCs, including getattr, read, write.  It leaves
  unconditional Giant acquisitions in vnode operations that interact
  with the name space or more than one vnode at a time as these
  require further work.
