    namei: IH_REALLYCLOSE special inode on delete
    When we delete a special inode, we should IH_REALLYCLOSE it, to ensure
    no other cached file handles are open for that special inode. However,
    currently PurgeHeader_r does this, and then IH_DECs the special
    inodes. On namei, calling IH_DEC on a special inode causes the inode
    to be opened, so we create a cached file handle right after we closed
    all cached file handles for that inode with IH_REALLYCLOSE.
    Making namei IH_DEC not open an FdHandle_t for the given file is
    non-trivial, at least when dec'ing the linktable. So instead, just
    make namei IH_DEC itself issue the IH_REALLYCLOSE right before the
    actual unlink() call.
    With this, we can keep the cached file handle open for special inodes
    until right before they are actually deleted, so we don't issue extra
    unnecessary open()s and close()s.
