[Cluster-devel] [PATCH] dlm: limit dir lookup loop



In a rare case we may need to repeat a local resource directory lookup
due to a race with removing the rsb and removing the resdir record.
We'll never need to do more than a single additional lookup, though,
so the infinite loop around the lookup can be removed.  In addition
to being unnecessary, the infinite loop is dangerous since some other
unknown condition may appear causing the loop to never break.
