    This patch is broken in fs/locks.c:

    + /* The new lock breaks the old one in two pieces,
    + * so we have to use the second new lock (in this
    + * case, even F_UNLCK may fail!).
    missing the '*/' here ---------|

    + left = locks_init_lock(new_fl2, right);
    locks_insert_lock(before, left);
    + new_fl2 = NULL;
