Subject[PATCH 02/11] ocfs2_dlmfs: Use poll() to signify BASTs.
Date
o2dlm's userspace filesystem is an easy way to use the DLM from
userspace. It is intentionally simple. For example, it does not allow
for asynchronous behavior or lock conversion. This is intentional to
keep the interface simple.

Because there is no asynchronous notification, there is no way for a
process holding a lock to know another node needs the lock. This is the
number one complaint of ocfs2_dlmfs users. Turns out, we can solve this
very easily. We add poll() support to ocfs2_dlmfs. When a BAST is
received, the lock's file descriptor will receive POLLIN.

This is trivial to implement. Userdlm already has an appropriate
waitqueue, and the lock knows when it is blocked.

We add the "bast" capability to tell userspace this is available.
