the bug with this on linux platforms seems to be holding a write lock
on the vnode when calling afs_InactiveVCache(). afs_remunlink() expects
to take a write lock on the vnode in question. if it fails, it gives up.
you should probably hold the vnode write lock since afs_InactiveVCache()
does change some of the vnode's members. so, should afs_remunlink()
be taking the write lock? the quick fix is to not hold the lock
across afs_InactiveVCache(). is this suitable for long term?
