 invalidate the pages.
 if there's an error and KPM is on, pass VX_SM_DESTROY to
(568285)  Corrected vx_isnfs() to take curproc->p_lockp mutex before
 accessing p_pgidp to avoid panic with NULL pointer dereference.
(1079790) fsck log replay extremely slow
(1086039) Introduce the VX_CFS_IRWLOCKEOF and VX_CFS_SIZEVALID flags. Updated
 vx_get_inodedata() to skip taking the IGLOCK update for regular
 file of nomtime mount when the VX_CFS_SIZEVALID flag is set.
 Also adjust the flags VX_CFS_CFLAGS_MASK.

 as fs could has been resized.
(1094575) Update vx_logbuf_clean(). Move VX_DELAY(1) to later position
 after releasing the fs_logclean_slk lock.
(1069072) Introduce a new field (valid) in dotdot_list to capture if there is a
 valid parent. The new field exists in both parent's databases and
 their attributes area. With this fix, fsck can detect any invalid
 attribute entry.
6566674 (1082252) Unable to mount vxfs filesystem globally on AMD,
 getting  I/O error.
