Mostly because nobody is interested in picking it up... I use this patch
regularly and haven't have it break on me. Posting on -hackers got me
referred to -standards, -standards wasn't interested because it's not
standard (it's an extension). So basically, nobody uses it, nobody is
interested it, and I get the feeling it'll never be committed.
I've already gotten over my bitterness on the point, so if you want to
mark it closed or whatever, that's fine... I don't plan on pursuing it
any further as feature advocacy isn't a hobby of mine.
Referring it to whomever is going to be handling (or is handling?) the
upcoming file locking overhaul would be nice. flock() semantics with
record locking is something that IMHO *nix desperately needs.
