LTP fcntl tests (fcntl11 fcntl14 fcntl17 fcntl19 fcntl20 fcntl21) have been
failing for NFSv4 mounts due to an unexpected l_pid.  What follows are some

v2: - Rebase onto linux-next
    - Revert back to using the stack in locks_mandatory_area(), and fixup
	patch description for 1/3

v3: - The lkp-robot found some serious per_thread_ops performance
	regressions for v1 and v2, so this version changes things around to not
	acquire a reference to struct pid in fl_nspid for every lock.  Instead,
	it drops fl_nspid altogether, and defers the lookup of the
	namespace-translated pid until it actually needed.

v4: - Instead of looking up the virtual pid by way of referencing the struct
	task of the that pid, instead use find_pid_ns() and pid_nr_ns(), which
	avoids a the problem where we race to get a reference to the struct task
	while it may be freed.

v5: - Squash previous 2/3 and 3/3 to avoid regression where F_GETLK would
	return the init_ns pid instead of a translated pid.

v6: - State clearly how the differing cases of l_pid translation should be
	handled, specifically regarding remote locks on remote files: that
	fl_pid ought to be returned from the filesystem as <= 0 to indicate that
	it makes no sense to translate this l_pid.
	- Follow up with a patch to have filesystems negate fl_pid for remote
	locks on remote files.

Benjamin Coddington (3):
  fs/locks: Use allocation rather than the stack in fcntl_getlk()
  fs/locks: Remove fl_nspid and use fs-specific l_pid for remote locks
  staging/lustre, 9p, ceph, cifs, dlm: negate remote pids for F_GETLK
