    Subjectfcntl(F_GETLEASE) semantics??

    The LTP test fcntl23 is failing. It does, in essence,
    fd = open(xxx, O_RDWR|O_CREAT, 0777);
    if (fcntl(fd, F_SETLEASE, F_RDLCK) == -1)

    fcntl always returns EAGAIN here. The manual page says that a read
    lease causes notification when `another process' opens the file for
    writing or truncates it. The kernel implements `any process'
    (including the current one).

    Which semantics are correct? Personally I think that what the kernel
    implements is correct (you can't get a read lease unsless there are no
    writers _at_ _all_)
