[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 17/18] GFS2: Fix locking bug in failed shared to exclusive conversion

From: Benjamin Marzinski <bmarzins redhat com>

After calling out to the dlm, GFS2 sets the new state of a glock to
gl_target in gdlm_ast().  However, gl_target is not always the lock
state that was requested. If a conversion from shared to exclusive
fails, finish_xmote() will call do_xmote() with LM_ST_UNLOCKED, instead
of gl->gl_target, so that it can reacquire the lock in exlusive the next
time around.  In this case, setting the lock to gl_target in gdlm_ast()
will make GFS2 think that it has the glock in exclusive mode, when
really, it doesn't have the glock locked at all.  This patch adds a new
field to the gfs2_glock structure, gl_req, to track the mode that was
