[Cluster-devel] [PATCH 5/6] GFS2: Fix unlock of fcntl locks during withdrawn state



From: David Teigland <teigland redhat com>

This reminded me of another old patch I had sitting around which I never
had a chance to test.  I copied this idea from the nfs code.  The problem
is that when the kernel clears flocks/plocks during close, it calls posix
unlock even if there are no posix locks on the file.  Without this patch,
that extraneous unlock propagates up to controld, across the cluster, and
back down to the kernel.  That can amount to a lot of plock activity on a
fs that may have never used a single plock (only flocks).  With this
patch, we should detect that the unlock is extraneous (since it doesn't
exist in the vfs), and skip all the userland traffic.
