I'm not sure I follow you here...

GFS2/DLM does report the conflicting lock. It's just that when there is
one, it's only overwriting some of the fields in the lock. The idea
with this patch is to basically try and make dlm_posix_get() fill out
the same fields as __locks_copy_lock() and make sure the rest are
initialized.
