This block of code looks problematic. This code is run by the
cifs_demultiplex_thread (cifsd). We can't do an oplock_break_put in
this context, since it might trigger a blocking SMB and cause a
deadlock.

A while back, I backported this code to earlier kernels and used a
standard workqueue there. What I did there was to only do the "get" if
the queue_work succeeded, and then had the queued work take and
immediately drop the GlobalSMBSeslock first thing. Yes, it's ugly, but
it prevented the possible deadlock and didn't require adding anything
like completion vars to the struct.

Also, this change seems to have changed the logic a bit. The
oplock_break_cancelled flag is being set to false unconditionally, and
the printk was dropped. Not a big deal on the last part, but we can't
really do much with errors in this codepath so it might be helpful to
have some indication that there are problems here.

Other than the above problems (which are easily fixable), this patch
seems fine.
