My mistake. I should check @holder_ops instead of @holder_data.

Won't for now. I have tested it with my simple testcases.

I didn't think of this case. But I think this uses read lock too. It
won't be blocked. Only dax_set_holder() takes write lock.

Yes.

Right.

It's mistake when I rebase my code to the latest. These lines were
deleted but I didn't notice. Will fix it.
