Interesting, I'd be curious to know what the panic for this looks like?

>  entry point because the VFS can't be sure that this scenario is

>  Dereference 'tdvp' instead, which is already locked on entry, and access

>  While at it, remove the usage of VOP_REALVP, as long as this is a NOP
>  on FreeBSD.
