LOCK_MAY_WRITE(9)						   The Linux VFS						 LOCK_MAY_WRITE(9)

lock_may_write - checks that the region is free of locks SYNOPSIS
int lock_may_write(struct inode * inode, loff_t start, unsigned long len); ARGUMENTS
inode the inode that is being written start the first byte to write len the number of bytes to write DESCRIPTION
Emulates Windows locking requirements. Whole-file mandatory locks (share modes) can prohibit a write and byte-range POSIX locks can prohibit a write if they overlap. N.B. this function is only ever called from knfsd and ownership of locks is never checked. COPYRIGHT
