NAME

     vrele - decrement the use count for a vnode

SYNOPSIS

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

     void
     vrele(struct vnode *vp);

DESCRIPTION

     Decrement the v_usecount field of the vnode specified by vp.

     Any code in the system which uses a vnode should call vrele() when it is
     finished with the vnode. If the v_usecount field of the vnode reaches
     zero, the vnode will be placed on the free list.
