Update of /cvs/openafs/src/afs
In directory GRAND.CENTRAL.ORG:/data/sb/openafs-stable-1.2/openafs/src/afs

Modified Files:
      Tag: openafs-stable-1_2_x
Log Message:
DELTA STABLE12-linux-dcache-create-negative-dentries-22-needs-while-still-avoiding-vlru-cycle-20020328

based on patch by Srikanth Vishwanathan and modifications based on suggestions
from Ted Anderson applicable to this part of the code.

the original theory we operated under, namely that negative dentries
could be banished entirely, causes file creation to stop working
under linux 2.2 kernels. reverting that change means we have to deal with
these negative dentries, and Srikanth's original suggested patch does so.
