Unlike in the previously used macro MNT_VNODE_FOREACH_ABORT_ILOCKED(),
the currently used macro MNT_VNODE_FOREACH_ALL_ABORT() manages
mount mutexes itself so you don't need to mess with them. The locking is there,
it's just hidden behind macros.

Yep, so that patches will be tested before they go to head.
