kernel-flock and kernel supported sharemode locking ...

Hi folks and Jeremy,
Having added OpLock support for Panasas's file system, I now have to add
support for sharemode locking.
Currently, open_file_shared in file.c calls kernel_flock, but ignores
the result ...
I need to check the result, because the Panasas File System might say
that the file is already open in an incompatible mode, which I should
take notice of.
Would it be better to add a more general facility like the OpLock
support, or simply hack open_file_shared to do what I want?
I suspect that others will have this problem as well ...
