I think this is too dangerous, if the client still has files with
batch/exclusive oplocks
open and changes in the local buffer, we may trigger data corruption. At
least without
durable opens.

I think the command (maybe a 2nd one) should first trigger a break to
level2 to all opens
and don't grant more for the rest of the connection lifetime. And the
should only work if the connection is in good shape.
