Re: [Cluster-devel] GFS2: Don't use trylocks when converting dlm locks

This patch looks good in theory, but for some unknown reason,
causes a problem.  It seems to open a timing window with
gfs2_rename's unlink code:

Instrumentation reveals:
cur_state = 0, new_state = 2 block = 0x1506ea i_unlinked: 0x0

So apparently the reclaiming of unlinked dinodes has nothing
to do with it.  It was trying to change a block from "free"
to "unlinked" which is invalid.

I'm investigating the problem now.
