Dave complained today that the fate of bhv_vnode_t isn't entirely clear
yet, so I've prepared these two patches to kill it in a minimally
invasive way.  While it causes churn in a lot of areas it does not
affect the generated code at all.

I know a bunch of stuff has gone in that is not very portable, which is fine since
they can be dealt with individually since they are not that intrusive.

Changing bhv_vnode_t to struct inode throughout the code is a pretty big
change and would be a major pain to work around.
