First vfs megapatch (not for the faint of heart)

    Well, if you want to test the patch what you want to do is exercise the
    filesystem.  Things like cvs checkouts, buildworld -j N, the filesystem
    stressers in /usr/src/test/stress, and so forth.  I'd rather not tell
    people exactly what to do because then everyone would be running the
    same tests :-)
Alright, point taken.

What I did:
cvs checkout of src.
cpdup to another partition.
Ran fsx test for a while (~1 hour)
Removed the whole stuff again.
Made a realquickrel in nrelease.
No problems so far.
Tomorrow I'll do a complete compiling
cycle. Looks good.
