NAME

     vrele - decrement the use count for a vnode

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/vnode.h>

     void
     vrele(struct vnode *vp);

DESCRIPTION

     Decrement the v_usecount field of a vnode.

     vp  the vnode to decrement

     Any code in the system which is using a vnode should call vrele() when it
     is finished with the vnode.  If the v_usecount field of the vnode reaches
     zero, then it will be placed on the free list.
