Re: BUG? "Call fasync() functions without the BKL" is racy

Still I'd like to see the better fix for the long term, the only (afaics)
flag with the "side effect" is FASYNC, perhaps we can move it to (say)
->f_mode, but this is ugly of course and still need serialization for the
pathes which play with FASYNC.

I wonder if we need FASYNC at all. This could be gotten implicitely by
looking at the fasync_list
