    Windows: Refactor AFSValidateEntry
    Refactor AFSValidateEntry to avoid obtaining the
    ObjectInformation->Fcb->Resource when it isn't necessary.
    This will avoid contention and improve performance.
    The only time that the Fcb->Resource is required is when
    the object requires verification, the object is a FILE,
    and the object was successfully evaluated.
    Even with this reorganization there is a small window
    of opportunity for a deadlock to occur if a CcPurgeCacheSection()
    which is called with the Fcb->Resource held triggers a filter
    driver to issue a CreateFile and in between the two operations
    an invalidate object is received.
