    vol: make namei_ListAFSSubDirs deal with multiple/bad linktables
    The salvager ends up deadlocking when multiple linktables exist
    in the same volume group special directory.  The issue is that we
    open and flock all discovered linktables, but only close out the
    last one found.  Consequently, when our child scans the linktables
    again, we deadlock against the locked and leaked descriptor(s) our
    parent left around before forking.
    While we have so far been unable to root-cause the actual creation
    of spurious linktables, this patch will at least stop the salvager
    from deadlocking against itself when this occurs.
