vput -- Decrement the primary reference count for a vnode and unlock it
vput(struct vnode *vp);
Decrement the vnode's primary reference count (via the v_sysref field)
and unlock the vnode.
vp The vnode in question.
This operation is functionally equivalent to calling vn_unlock(9) fol-
lowed by vrele(9). Releasing the last primary reference on a vnode will
cause it to be deactivated and either moved to the free list or cached.
Vnodes with namecache and/or VM objects are typically marked as being
cached unless the system needs the memory for other purposes.
