[linux-cifs] [PATCH v2 03/10] locks: add a new struct file_locking_context pointer to struct inode


The current scheme of using the i_flock list is really difficult to
manage. There is also a legitimate desire for a per-inode spinlock to
manage these lists that isn't the i_lock.

Start conversion to a new scheme to eventually replace the old i_flock
list with a new "file_lock_context" object.

We start by adding a new i_flctx to struct inode. For now, it lives in
parallel with i_flock list, but will eventually replace it. The idea is
to allocate a structure to sit in that pointer and act as a locus for
all things file locking.

We allocate a file_lock_context for an inode when the first lock is
added to it, and it's only freed when the inode is freed. Assignment
of the pointer is done without locking using a compare and swap
operation.
