Problem Description:

6305689 (567987) VxFS should take advanage of Solaris 9 dirty page ordering
(1083386) Change assertion from VX_CFS_MASTER to VX_CFS_SAFEMASTER for
 vx_local_convnodata and vx_set_delay_nodata because nodata conversion
 can take place during assumption.
(1018525) Corrected call to vol_dereserve() with the device name as argument.
(1035745) corrected vx_recv_cwfa_loadfs() to update fs_dsize as fs could
 have been resized.
(1050449) Updated vx_logbuf_clean() by moving VX_DELAY(1) after releasing
 fs_logclean_slk lock.
(1069211) ACLs inherited from default ACLs allow greater permission than
 requested in some cases
(1073266) Take ilock before calling vx_msg_send in vx_rpc_setattr_tran so we
 don't get incorrect mtime on cfs secondary
(1094551) Introduce a new field (valid) in dotdot_list to capture if there is
 any valid parent (exist in both parent's db and it's attr area).
 With this fix, fsck will able to detect any invalid attr entry.
 skip to call make_dodot_list() for the case of nlink = 1 andi
 no dotdot attr.
(1033618) use the right format string for printing "Total Blocks" field.

(from 120110-05)
(700090) Fixed a panic that could occur if overlay inodes were held during
        a remount.
(702292) Fixed a deadlock that occurred when the ENOSPC error was hit and
        there were too many pending FDD I/Os.
(857703) Fixed a node panicking and rebooting when hastop -all was
        executed on another node.
(965025) Fixed vxdump failing to detect End of Tape (EOT).
(966827) Updated vx_root_iget() to check for NULL returned from
(966851) Fixed vxdump failing to detect End of Media (EOM).

(from 120110-04)
(702080) Updated postinstall script to cleanup /etc/system if there
        are duplicates.
(699882) In fs_bad_extent(), check that bno is not 0.
(526892) In vx_map() try to avoid to invalidate the pages locally in the
        case of the file is not shared by cache the pglock grant in EX mode
        locally instead. Also, hold VX_IGLOCK (share mode) before calling
        VX_IPGLOCK_CACHEGRANT and release it afterward to preven
        xted_ipglock1:1 assertion.
(568282) Corrected vx_isnfs() to take proc->p_lockp mutex before
        accessing p_pgidp to avoid panic with NULL pointer dereference.
(625371) Corrected vx_getpage1() to hold GLOCK exclusive when GETPAGE for
        write with a master-less inode.
(625474) Updated vx_logbuf_clean() to give up CPU to avoid
        spinning when waitflag is set but fs_actlb is NULL.
(639079) Fixed bmap code to avoid metadata corruption with writing into a
        hole on a double indirect address block boundary.
