    Windows: deadlock bet. DirEntry lock + DirectoryNodeHdr.TreeLock
    The DirectoryNodeHdr.TreeLock must be obtained before the
    DirEntry->NonPaged->Lock.  In AFSLocateNameEntry(), the
    DirEntry lock is obtained before the TreeLock when processing
    a symlink object.  For that case obtain the TreeLOCK first.
    Drop it if it is not required.
