    kernel - Cleanup vfs_lock & ref-count states states
    * Clean up vp->v_state state transitions
    * Fix bugs in the cachedvnodes counter tracking.  v_refcnt has to
      be masked against VREF_MASK to detect non-zero->0 and 0->non-zero
      transitions properly.
    * Clear VREF_FINALIZE when reactivating a vnode in vget().
    * vhold()/vdrop() no longer prevent a vnode from being moved to the
      vinactive list.  They simply prevent reclamation.
    * Adjust the vnlru trigger points a bit.
    * When cleaning, leave the vnode on the inactive list until we determine
      we can destroy it.  Add a ref instead of using the VREF_TERMINATE
      placeholding ref (since the vnode is still on the list).
    * Implement vnode->v_act and remove the inactive mid-point stuff.  The
      now is that vnodes are selectively moved from the active list to
      the inactive list as needed.  Inactive vnodes are then cleaned up in order.
    * Adjust hysteresis so that vnlru has a better chance of handling the
      vnode garbage collection before we forced it to be done synchronously
      in userexit.
