commit 7893df2c21bd120a67f1afbf6f83b70af11e8824

    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.
