    devfs - Introduce MPSAFE read/write/ioctl support
    * Add D_MPSAFE_READ, D_MPSAFE_WRITE and D_MPSAFE_IOCTL defines for use
      with the dev_ops structure to mark the read,write and/or ioctl methods
      as mpsafe.
    * Change devfs so that it won't acquire the mplock for
      read/writes/ioctls that are marked as MPSAFE.
    * Add some statistics under sysctl vfs.devfs about the number of read
      and writes done with the mplock and without it.
    * While here, MPSAFE specf_stat in devfs so it doesn't acquire the
      mplock anymore as it doesn't even need it.
