Subject[GIT PULL] AFS fixes and other bits
Hi Linus,

Here's a set of fixes and other bits for AFS to improve the life of desktop
applications such as firefox. It makes the following improvements/fixes:

(1) Fix file locking to allow fine-grained locking, as required by firefox
and sqlite, with the caveat that you can't get a partial write lock on
a file if you first get a partial read lock on it as the AFS protocol
only supports whole-file locks.

[At some point I need to look at how best to emulate OpenAFS's
behaviour whereby all partial locks are just granted without reference
to the kernel lock - maybe with some sort of mount parameter to enable

(2) Fix the way the server lock, once obtained, is distributed to the
local processes waiting for it, thereby making sure they wait if they
can't be immediately granted a local lock.

(3) Fix the nonappearance of afs locks in /proc/locks.

(4) Fix the handling of asynchronous file lock RPC operation failure on
files that get deleted whilst the lock is being extended or released.

(5) Implement silly-rename.

(6) Fix the file lock expiry calculation to be based on the time the set-
or extend-lock reply is seen (packet timestamp) rather than by the
time at which we've done processing the operation (wallclock time) to
allow for delays in processing.

(7) Split the synchronous wait out of the client call dispatcher to make
it possible to convert synchronous calls into async calls in the event
of a signal.

The series also:

(1) Adds/modifies a number of tracepoints, mostly related to file locking
and silly rename.

(2) Provides a more comprehensive data dump in the event that a directory
content check fails.

The following changes since commit ebc551f2b8f905eca0e25c476c1e5c098cd92103:
