    Subject[PATCH 3/3] GFS2: Skip check for mandatory locks when unlocking
    From: Sachin Prabhu <>

    gfs2_lock() will skip locks on file which have mode set to 02666. This is a problem in cases where the mode of the file is changed after a process has obtained a lock on the file. Such a lock will be skipped and will result in a BUG in locks_remove_flock().

    gfs2_lock() should skip the check for mandatory locks when unlocking a file.
