Also affects: 2.4.7, 2.4.9-ac{4,6,9}, probably others.

Problem: in locks_mandatory_area(), fcntl_setlk(), fcntl_setlk64(), no
check whether locks_alloc_lock() succeeds. Attached patch fixes that.

Not sure about one thing, though: what error code to return for
locks_mandatory_area() on failure. It's invoked from some of the
{do,sys}_*{read,write}*() routines and nowhere else AFAICT. I set it to
-ENOMEM, maybe this is not the right thing to do.

Patch follows and is attached. Made over 2.4.9-ac10, applies cleanly
over -ac's mentioned above and with offests (1 to 3 lines) on 2.4.7 and
