SubjectRE: [PATCH v7 0/7] Add O_DENY* support for VFS and CIFS/NFS
Date
This looks wonderful and will be useful to the Ganesha user space NFS server
also.

I do have a couple questions.

1. How will this interact with the idea of private locks from the patch set
Jeff Layton has been pushing?

2. If a process opens multiple file descriptors with deny modes, will they
conflict with each other (which is the behavior we will want for Ganesha).

3. Is there any functionality to upgrade or downgrade the access and deny
modes (thinking in terms of NFS v4 support of OPEN upgrade and
OPEN_DOWNGRADE operations).

Thanks

Frank
