Description Lon Hohberger 2006-01-17 13:53:27 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #177934 +++

Description of problem:

If you call dlm_release_lockspace() in libdlm from userland from an application
A, application B's reference to the open lockspace will become invalid if
application B has no locks granted at the time of the release.


Program A        Program B
Create LS 'Foo'
                 Open LS 'Foo'
Acquire lock
Release lock
Release LS
                 Acquire lock   <-- returns -1 / ENOENT

The idea here is to provide a workaround in the plugin itself.  The simplest
solution is to take a null lock in the lockspace so that release_lockspace
doesn't have anything to check.
