Ok, I can slightly update my patch description. The problem still
remains that glocks can be deleted from the rhashtable between
stop/start, and that needs to be fixed in gfs2. Once that's done,
keeping track of the current glock comes for free and we won't need
rhashtable_walk_peek anymore.

Should rhashtable_walk_peek be kept around even if there are no more
users? I have my doubts.
