     getnewvnode - get a new vnode


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

     getnewvnode(const char *tag, struct mount *mp, vop_t **vops,
             struct vnode **vpp);


     The getnewvnode() function initializes a new vnode, assigning it the
     vnode operations passed in vops.  The vnode is either freshly allocated,
     or taken from the head of the free list depending on the number of vnodes
     already in the system.

     The arguments to getnewvnode() are:

     tag   The file system type string.  This field should only be referenced
           for debugging or for userland utilities.

     mp    The mount point to add the new vnode to.

     vops  The vnode operations to assign to the new vnode.

     vpp   Points to the new vnode upon successful completion.


     getnewvnode() returns 0 on success.  There are currently no failure
     conditions - that do not result in a panic.
