VGONE(9)	       FreeBSD Kernel Developer's Manual	      VGONE(9)

NAME
     vgone -- prepare a	vnode for reuse

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

     void
     vgone(struct vnode	*vp);

DESCRIPTION
     The vgone() function prepares the vnode to	be destroyed.  The preparation
     includes the cleaning of all file system specific data and	the removal
     from its mount point vnode	list.

     If	the vnode has a	v_usecount of zero, and	its VIRF_DOOMED	flag is	not
     set, it is	moved to the head of the free list as in most cases the	vnode
     is	about to be reused, or its file	system is being	unmounted.

     The vgone() function takes	an exclusively locked vnode, and returns with
     the vnode exclusively locked.
