Maybe I am just confused, but looking at the code in open.c,
where SMB_VFS_KERNEL_FLOCK is called, we currently have a problem
of getting sharing violation for any vfs module that returns
-1 from kernel_flock_fn, irrespective of the errno?
(The code does not check it.)

I have had the impression before, that I can't see
how the current glusterfs vfs module can work without
'kernel share modes = no' in the config.

Maybe I am also just missing a subtle point.
