3.5.7.12 -stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Trond Myklebust <Trond.Myklebust@netapp.com>

commit 1dfd89af8697a299e7982ae740d4695ecd917eef upstream.

After a server reboot, the reclaimer thread will recover all the existing
locks. For locks that are blocked, however, it will change the value
of block->b_status to nlm_lck_denied_grace_period in order to signal that
they need to wake up and resend the original blocking lock request.

Due to a bug, however, the block->b_status never gets reset after the
blocked locks have been woken up, and so the process goes into an
infinite loop of resends until the blocked lock is satisfied.
