    kernel - Fix rare race in namecache
    * Fix a rare race in _cache_cleanneg() where the ncp being cleaned up is
      resolved during the moment between where _cache_cleanneg() accesses it
      prior to locking and removing it.
    * _cache_cleanneg() needed to re-check that the ncp was still on the
      negative cache list.
