DETAILS OF INCIDENTS FIXED BY THE PATCH
---------------------------------------
This patch fixes the following Symantec incidents:

Patch ID: PVKL_04071

* 3845273 (Tracking ID: 2850818)

SYMPTOM:
GLM thread may get panic if cache pointer remains null.

DESCRIPTION:
When GLM cache pointer is de-refrenced, thread got panicked. This
is due to the reason that there can be a case where memory is not allocated to
the cache and pointer remained null but we missed the check for null pointer and
later we de-referenced that resulting into the panic.

RESOLUTION:
Code has been modified to handle the situation where memory is not
allocated for the cache.

Patch ID: PVKL_04035

* 3364311 (Tracking ID: 3364309)

SYMPTOM:
Internal stress test on cluster file system hit debug assert in Group Lock Manager (GLM).

DESCRIPTION:
In GLM, the code to handle last revoke for a lock may cause a deadlock which is caught upfront by debug assert.

RESOLUTION:
The code is modified to avoid deadlock while handling last revoke for a lock.
