Missed this mail, sorry for the late reply...

AFAICS wait_for_unix_gc() lacks a barrier that the spin lock provides.

The ordering needs to be strictly:

A: duplicate file pointers
B: garbage collect

Also wait_for_unix_gc() is an overkill since the complete garbage
collect (including purging the trash) will take longer than the
collection stage, which we need to have ordering with. This probably
doesn't matter much in practice.

Thanks,
Miklos
