Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a 6 Node gluster
2.Create an EC volume 2 x (4 + 2).Enable GNFS on the volume
3.Mount the volume to 2 clients.
4.Create a file say file1 of 512 bytes from client 1
5.Now take the lock on the same file from client1
6.Try taking the lock on the same file from client2.(Lock will not be granted for client 2 because it is already held by client 1)
7.Now release the lock from client 1

Client 1:
[root@dhcp37-192 home]# ./a.out /mnt/disperse/file1 
opening /mnt/disperse/file1
opened; hit Enter to lock... 
locked; hit Enter to write... 
Write succeeeded 
locked; hit Enter to unlock... 

Client 2
[root@dhcp37-142 home]# ./a.out /mnt/disperse1/file1 
opening /mnt/disperse1/file1
opened; hit Enter to lock... 

Actual results:
It unable to release the lock from file and gets hang

Expected results:
It should able to release the lock from client1

COMMIT: https://review.gluster.org/17556 committed in release-3.11 by Shyamsundar Ranganathan (srangana@redhat.com) 
commit 6e377faf4490f20a63634c8baecb76886c0dac8a
Author: Pranith Kumar K <pkarampu@redhat.com>
Date:   Tue Jun 13 23:35:40 2017 +0530

    cluster/ec: lk shouldn't be a transaction
    When application sends a blocking lock, the lk fop actually waits under
    inodelk.  This can lead to a dead-lock.
    1) Let's say app-1 takes exculsive-fcntl-lock on the file
    2) app-2 attempts an exclusive-fcntl-lock on the file which goes to blocking
       stage note: app-2 is blocked inside transaction which holds an inode-lock
    3) app-1 tries to perform write which needs inode-lock so it gets blocked on
       app-2 to unlock inodelk and app-2 is blocked on app-1 to unlock fcntl-lock
    Correct way to fix this issue and make fcntl locks perform well would be to
    2-phase locking for fcntl lock:
    1) Implement a try-lock phase where locks xlator will not merge lk call with
       existing calls until a commit-lock phase.
    2) If in try-lock phase we get quorum number of success without any EAGAIN
       error, then send a commit-lock which will merge locks.
    3) In case there are any errors, unlock should just delete the lock-object
       which was tried earlier and shouldn't touch the committed locks.
    Unfortunately this is a sizeable feature and need to be thought through for any
    corner cases.  Until then remove transaction from lk call.
