Subject[019/152] NFS: Fix fcntl F_GETLK not reporting some conflicts
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.


From: Sergey Vlasov <>

commit 21ac19d484a8ffb66f64487846c8d53afef04d2b upstream.

The commit 129a84de2347002f09721cda3155ccfd19fade40 (locks: fix F_GETLK
regression (failure to find conflicts)) fixed the posix_test_lock()
function by itself, however, its usage in NFS changed by the commit
9d6a8c5c213e34c475e72b245a8eb709258e968c (locks: give posix_test_lock
same interface as ->lock) remained broken - subsequent NFS-specific
locking code received F_UNLCK instead of the user-specified lock type.
To fix the problem, fl->fl_type needs to be saved before the
posix_test_lock() call and restored if no local conflicts were reported.
