Right. Eventually that open-coded loop (and the WARN_ON) goes away once
leases get moved into i_flctx in a later patch.

FWIW, there is some messiness involved in this patchset in the interim
stages due to the need to keep things bisectable. Once all of the
patches are applied, the result looks a lot cleaner.

I don't know. On the one hand, I rather like keeping all of the lock
removal logic in a single spot. On the other hand, we do take and drop
the i_lock/flc_lock more than once with this scheme if there are both
flock locks and leases present at the time of the close. Open coding
the loops would allow us to do that just once.

I'll ponder it a bit more for the next iteration...
