VRECYCLE(9) Kernel Developer's Manual VRECYCLE(9)

vrecyclerecycle a vnode if its reference count is zero

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

vrecycle(struct vnode *vp, struct proc *p);

The () function places the vnode vp on the free list using vgonel(9) if its v_usecount field is zero. If v_usecount is non-zero, it simply returns. The p argument specifies the process responsible for the call.

vrecycle() will return 1 if the vnode was placed on the free list. It will return 0 if the reference count was non-zero.

vgonel(9), vnode(9)
