This scares me.  Not that its impossible to have one set of code
that runs on -stable Freebsd/NetBSD and Freebsd -current and NetBSD
-current.  (I did once.)  The code gets rather messy.  Its not only
that there are freebsd/netbsd differences, but there are also
generational differences as well.  -current (on both) have gone to
vn_lock vs calling VOP_LOCK directly.  I believe that there were
subtleties involved in unmounting coda.  Also freebsd -current
has changed the where vrele fits in as well as some details of the
vm system.

I'm guessing that you are trying to keep one kernel tree for all
platforms.  I'd prefer that you keep the 3 different trees and track
