  Fix a race in rename when relocking the source namecache entry.  Since we
  may have blocked previously it is possible for the namecache entry to become
  invalid (not destroyed since we hold a ref, but invalid).  For example, if
  the source was removed.  This case only occurs when rename() is racing
  against a remove() or another rename that is overwriting the target that
  represents our 'from' name.
  The race resulted in a NULL pointer dereference.
