Subject[PATCH 31/80] staging: lustre: llite: avoid a deadlock in page write
Date
From: Jinshan Xiong <jinshan.xiong@intel.com>

For a partial page write, it will have to issue a READ RPC firstly
to get a full uptodate page. If another page is already locked by
this thread it can easily cause deadlock.
