SubjectRe: [RFC] page lock ordering and OCFS2

Yeah, understood.

So here's an entirely different approach. We add a return value to readpage,
prepare_write, and commit_write in the style of WRITEPAGE_ACTIVATE. It tells
the callers that the locked page they handed to the op has been unlocked and
that they should back off and try again. This lets the ocfs2 methods notice
when they're going to sleep on the DLM and can unlock the page before sleeping.

This compiles but hasn't been tested.
