[GFS2] flocks from same process trip kernel BUG at fs/gfs2/glock.c:1118!
This patch adds a new flag to the gfs2_holder structure GL_FLOCK. It is set on holders of glocks representing flocks. This flag is checked in add_to_queue() and a process is permitted to queue more than one holder onto a glock if it is set. This solves the issue of a process not being able to do multiple flocks on the same file. Through a single descriptor, a process can now promote and demote flocks. Through multiple descriptors a process can now queue multiple flocks on the same file. There's still the problem of a process deadlocking itself (because gfs2 blocking locks are not interruptible) by queueing incompatible deadlock.
