  Before invoking vnode operations on cache vnodes, acquire the vnode
  locks of those vnodes.  Probably, Coda should do the same lock sharing/
  pass-through that is done for nullfs, but in the mean time this ensures
  that locks are adequately held to prevent corruption of data structures
  in the cache file system.
  Assuming most operations came from the top layer of Coda and weren't
  performed directly on the cache vnodes, in practice this corruption was
  relatively unlikely as the Coda vnode locks were ensuring exclusive
  access for most consumers.
  This causes WITNESS to squeal like a pig immediately when Coda is used,
  rather than waiting until file close; I noticed these problems because
  of the lack of said squealing.
