mount_null twice in a row panics
doing (for example) 'mount_null /usr /mnt' twice in a row panics the
box. Backtrace attached. I can send a dump but it's reliably reproducible.
Current directory is /var/crash/
Unread portion of the kernel message buffer:

I just tried it in a vkernel and the problem occurs if the
null-mounted directory is on HAMMER.
In that case during the second mount_null call,
VFS_ROOT(mp, &newdp) called from checkdirs() in turn called from sys_mount()
tries to acquire the same lock, that was already acquired by vn_lock()
from sys_mount() directly.
Doing checkdirs() after vn_unlock(vp) makes the problem go away, but
of course it might not be allowed to call checkdirs() without the lock

Hmm. I think we can safely call checkdirs() without the lock
protection as long as the vnode still has a ref, which it does.
The cache entries are still locked.
I will commit the change, we should be able to get enough testing
in prior to the release.
