use u64, __u64 is for structs shared with user space

use fs_warn(), and unless there's some precedent elsewhere I don't think
the human-readable translation is appropriate in the kernel.

Be extremely wary of using these "is_held" functions algorithmically;
needing to use them is usually an indication that you're doing something
wrong (I'll have to study this case a bit more to say anything helpful).

It's instructional to note that the glock_is_held functions are _never_
used outside of assertions in all of gfs1 and gfs2!  There's an exception
to every rule, but...
