dlm: no need to check return value of debugfs_create functions

When calling debugfs functions, there is no need to ever check the
return value. The function can work or not, but the code logic should
never do something different based on this.

dlm: audit and remove any unnecessary uses of module.h

Historically a lot of these existed because we did not have
a distinction between what was modular code and what was providing
support to modules via EXPORT_SYMBOL and friends. That changed
when we forked out support for the latter into the export.h file.
This means we should be able to reduce the usage of module.h
in code that is obj-y Makefile or bool Kconfig.

In the case of some code where it is modular, we can extend that to
also include files that are building basic support functionality but
not related to loading or registering the final module; such files
also have no need whatsoever for module.h

The advantage in removing such instances is that module.h itself
sources about 15 other headers; adding significantly to what we feed
cpp, and it can obscure what headers we are effectively using.

Since module.h might have been the implicit source for init.h
(for __init) and for export.h (for EXPORT_SYMBOL) we consider each
instance for the presence of either and replace as needed.

In the dlm case, we remove module.h from a global header and only
introduce it in the files where it is explicitly required, since
there is nothing modular in dlm_internal.h itself.

dlm: fix deadlock between dlm_send and dlm_controld

A deadlock sometimes occurs between dlm_controld closing
a lowcomms connection through configfs and dlm_send looking
up the address for a new connection in configfs.

dlm_controld does a configfs rmdir which calls
dlm_lowcomms_close which waits for dlm_send to
cancel work on the workqueues.

The dlm_send workqueue thread has called
tcp_connect_to_sock which calls dlm_nodeid_to_addr
which does a configfs lookup and blocks on a lock
held by dlm_controld in the rmdir path.

The solution here is to save the node addresses within
the lowcomms code so that the lowcomms workqueue does
not need to step through configfs to get a node address.

[DLM] add lock timeouts and warnings [2/6]

New features: lock timeouts and time warnings. If the DLM_LKF_TIMEOUT
flag is set, then the request/conversion will be canceled after waiting
the specified number of centiseconds (specified per lock). This feature
is only available for locks requested through libdlm (can be enabled for
kernel dlm users if there's a use for it.)

If the new DLM_LSFL_TIMEWARN flag is set when creating the lockspace, then
a warning message will be sent to userspace (using genetlink) after a
request/conversion has been waiting for a given number of centiseconds
(configurable per node). The time warnings will be used in the future
to do deadlock detection in userspace.

[DLM] Clean up lowcomms

When 0 is passed into nodeid2nodeinfo the function does not try to allocate a
new structure at all. it's an indication that the caller only wants the nodeinfo
struct for that nodeid if there actually is one in existance.
I've tidied the function itself so it's more obvious, (and tidier!)

Yes. it is only ever run in the context of dlm_recvd.

Not. it's only ever called at DLM shutdown after all the other threads

It's just an optimisation to allow the caller to schedule if there is no work
to do. if something arrives immediately afterwards then it will get picked up
when the process re-awakes (and it will be woken by that arrival).

The 'accepting' atomic has gone completely. as Andrew pointed out it didn't
really achieve much anyway. I suspect it was a plaster over some other
startup or shutdown bug to be honest.

[DLM] dlm: user locks

This changes the way the dlm handles user locks. The core dlm is now
aware of user locks so they can be dealt with more efficiently. There is
no more dlm_device module which previously managed its own duplicate copy
of every user lock.

This is the core of the distributed lock manager which is required

can be used as a standalone lock manager independantly of either
of these two projects.

It implements VAX-style locking modes.
