Sorry to notice this 1 year too late, but doesn't this
break ABI? You have changed the size (increased) of
struct flock and haven't really provided a compat version
of fcntl() that will work with binaries built before
Is there any way that the new field can be accidentally
used by the kernel from a binary built against the older
Now that we have symbol versioning, the way this normally
should be handled is by adding a compat fcntl() for
FBSD_1.0 in libc, and placing the new fcntl() in FBSD_1.1.
And since libthr wraps fcntl() for cancellation points,
I believe it would also need the same compat functions.
