VN - Remove use of IO_DIRECT, Improve lock performance for reads
* Remove the use of IO_DIRECT. This just doesn't work very well,
particularly when the device backing the VN has a different logical
block size than the device using VN.
This will result in heavier use of the buffer cache and more
(temporarily) duplicated data, but also has much better performance.
* Use LK_SHARED for VOP_READ()s instead of LK_EXCLUSIVE, which allows
concurrent reads to be issued.
