[Cluster-devel] [PATCH v4 10/14] locks: turn the blocked_list into a hashtable

Break up the blocked_list into a hashtable, using the fl_owner as a key.
This speeds up searching the hash chains, which is especially significant
for deadlock detection.

Note that the initial implementation assumes that hashing on fl_owner is
sufficient. In most cases it should be, with the notable exception being
server-side lockd, which compares ownership using a tuple of the
nlm_host and the pid sent in the lock request. So, this may degrade to a
single hash bucket when you only have a single NFS client. That will be
addressed in a later patch.

The careful observer may note that this patch leaves the file_lock_list
alone. There's much less of a case for turning the file_lock_list into a
hashtable. The only user of that list is the code that generates
/proc/locks, and it always walks the entire list.
