    Hm. Sounds like the same question that the file leases code needs
    answered. The important difference is that the leases code can just
    refuse to set a lease on inodes with multiple dentries.

    While my mind's on it ... Al, is this code even close to correct?

    if ((arg == F_RDLCK) && (atomic_read(&inode->i_writecount) > 0))
    goto out;
    if ((arg == F_WRLCK)
    && ((atomic_read(&dentry->d_count) > 1)
    || (atomic_read(&inode->i_count) > 1)))
    goto out;
