locks: make locks_mandatory_area check for file-private locks
Allow locks_mandatory_area() to handle file-private locks correctly. If there is a file-private lock set on an open file and we're doing I/O via the same, then that should not cause anything to block. Handle this by first doing a non-blocking FL_ACCESS check for a file-private lock, and then fall back to checking for a classic POSIX lock (and possibly blocking). Note that this approach is subject to the same races that have always plagued mandatory locking on Linux.
