As a follow up I think I found the problem. Somehow I ended up with a
circular link list.

/var/vservers/.hash/.hash => /var/vservers/.hash

Anyway it was getting ugly so I decided to remove the two guests and
probably due to my inexperience couldn't delete the the files in
/var/vservers. Tried every trick I could think of; chattr -R -i, chmod
-R u+rwx, etc.
   Finally remembering that I'd had file system problems many years ago
I rebooted into a normal kernel and was able to rm -rf /var/vservers/*.
  Booted back into the vs kernle and all is progressing.

I'll leave vhashify alone for a bit.
