[Cluster-devel] [GFS2] Fix recursive locking attempt with NFS



Hi,

In certain cases, its possible for NFS to call the lookup code while
holding the glock (when doing a readdirplus operation) so we need to
check for that and not try and lock the glock twice. This also fixes a
typo in a previous NFS related GFS2 patch.

Steve.
