    kernel - Add D_QUICK device flag
    * Add the D_QUICK device flag.  This flag tells devfs that it does not
      have to handle complex opencount interactions in VOP_OPEN and
      VOP_CLOSE, allowing devfs to retain the shared lock for those
    * Flag kernel special devices such as /dev/zero, /dev/null,
      /dev/urandom, etc, with D_QUICK.
