Writes to a hidden/internal file (like the quota file) set the PRIORITY
flag in the glock request, which cause the cancels.  I don't understand
why gfs would want to do cancels in this case, though, I was very
surprised to see that.  So, first job is to figure out why these writes
need to do cancels (or if that's the bug right there), and the second job
is to figure out why those cancels, if legitimate, are causing problems.
