SubjectRe: [Ocfs2-devel] [PATCH] ocfs2: try a blocking lock before return AOP_TRUNCATED_PAGE

Hi Jun, I think it is not necessary, since we just want to hold a while before get the DLM lock,
we do not care about the result, since we will unlock immediately here.
In fact, this patch does NOT add new code, just revert the old patch 1cce4df04f37, and add
more clear comments in the front of these two lines code.

Thanks
Gang
