[Cluster-devel] [GFS2 PATCH] GFS2: don't bother to ask DLM for try locks we know will fail



Hi,

While search for a suitable resource group, this patch checks the
glock holders queue for exclusive holders. If it finds any, it
doesn't bother queueing up the TRY lock only to waste time having
DLM shoot it down in favor of the other.

Regards,
