[PATCH 19/32] GFS2: Don't use a try lock when promoting to a higher mode

From: Steven Whitehouse
Date: Thu May 19 2011 - 05:13:34 EST

Previously we marked all locks being promoted to a higher mode
with the try flag to avoid any potential deadlocks issues. The
DLM is able to detect these and report them in way that GFS2 can
deal with them correctly. So we can just request the required mode
and wait for a response without needing to perform this check.
