locks: add special return value for asynchronous locks
Use a special error value FILE_LOCK_DEFERRED to mean that a locking operation returned asynchronously. This is returned by posix_lock_file() for sleeping locks to mean that the lock has been queued on the block list, and will be woken up when it might become available and needs to be retried (either fl_lmops->fl_notify() is called or fl_wait is woken up). f_op->lock() to mean either the above, or that the filesystem will call back with fl_lmops->fl_grant() when the result of the locking operation is known. The filesystem can do this for sleeping as well as non-sleeping locks. This is to make sure, that return values of -EAGAIN and -EINPROGRESS by filesystems are not mistaken to mean an asynchronous locking. This also makes error handling in fs/locks.c and lockd/svclock.c slightly cleaner. Signed-off-by: Miklos Szeredi <mszeredi@suse.cz> Cc: Trond Myklebust <trond.myklebust@fys.uio.no> Cc: "J.
