locks: rename file-private locks to "open file description locks"
File-private locks have been merged into Linux for v3.15, and *now* people are commenting that the name and macro definitions for the new file-private locks suck. ...and I can't even disagree. The names and command macros do suck. We're going to have to live with these for a long time, so it's important that we be happy with the names before we're stuck with them. The consensus on the lists so far is that they should be rechristened as "open file description locks". The name isn't a big deal for the kernel, but the command macros are not visually distinct enough from the traditional POSIX lock macros. The glibc and documentation folks are recommending that we change them to look like F_OFD_{GETLK|SETLK|SETLKW}. That lessens the chance that a programmer will typo one of the commands wrong, and also makes it easier to spot this difference when reading code. This patch makes the following changes that I think are necessary before v3.15 ships: 1) rename the command macros to their new names. These end up in the uapi headers and so are part of the external-facing API. It turns out that glibc doesn't actually use the fcntl.h uapi header, but it's hard to be sure that something else won't. Changing it now is safest. 2) make the the /proc/locks output display these as type "OFDLCK" Cc: Michael Kerrisk <mtk.manpages@gmail.com> Cc: Christoph Hellwig <hch@infradead.org> Cc: Carlos O'Donell <carlos@redhat.com> Cc: Stefan Metzmacher <metze@samba.org> Cc: Andy Lutomirski <luto@amacapital.net> Cc: Frank Filz <ffilzlnx@mindspring.com> Cc: Theodore Ts'o <tytso@mit.edu> Signed-off-by: Jeff Layton <jlayton@redhat.com>
