    HAMMER VFS - Minor bug (caught by assertion panic)
    * A snapshot can sometimes contain visible inodes whos nlinks count is 0,
      essentially the snapshot 'catches' the file in the middle of being deleted.
    * HAMMER was attempting to truncate the data for such inodes if the file
      were opened and then closed, and failed to check whether the inode was a
      snapshot or a current inode.  This flowed through until it hit an assertion
      designed to detect precisely that case.
    * Fixed by adding a check to determine if the inode is a snapshot and/or
      the filesystem is mounted read-only.
