VOP_INACTIVE(9)		 BSD Kernel Developer's	Manual	       VOP_INACTIVE(9)

NAME
     VOP_INACTIVE, VOP_RECLAIM -- reclaim file system resources	for a vnode

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

     int
     VOP_INACTIVE(struct vnode *vp, struct thread *td);

     int
     VOP_RECLAIM(struct	vnode *vp, struct thread *td);

DESCRIPTION
     The arguments are:

     vp	 The vnode being reclaimed.

     VOP_INACTIVE() is called when the kernel is no longer using the vnode.
     This may be because the reference count reaches zero or it	may be that
     the file system is	being forcibly unmounted while there are open files.
     It	can be used to reclaim space for `open but deleted' files.

     VOP_RECLAIM() is called when a vnode is being reused for a	different file
     system.  Any file system specific resources associated with the vnode
     should be freed.

LOCKS
     For both VOP_INACTIVE() and VOP_RECLAIM(),	the vp will be exclusively
     locked on entry, and must be left exclusively locked on return.
