features/shard: Fix launch of multiple synctasks for background deletion
PROBLEM: When multiple sharded files are deleted in quick succession, multiple issues were observed: 1. misleading logs corresponding to a sharded file where while one log message said the shards corresponding to the file were deleted successfully, this was followed by multiple logs suggesting the very same operation failed. This was because of multiple synctasks attempting to clean up shards of the same file and only one of them succeeding (the one that gets ENTRYLK successfully), and the rest of them logging failure. 2. multiple synctasks to do background deletion would be launched, one for each deleted file but all of them could readdir entries from .remove_me at the same time could potentially contend for ENTRYLK on .shard for each of the entry names. This is undesirable and wasteful. FIX: Background deletion will now follow a state machine. In the event that there are multiple attempts to launch synctask for background deletion, one for each file deleted, only the first task is launched. And if while this task is doing the cleanup, more attempts are made to delete other files, the state of the synctask is adjusted so that it restarts the crawl even after reaching end-of-directory to pick up any files it may have missed in the previous iteration. This patch also fixes uninitialized lk-owner during syncop_entrylk() which was leading to multiple background deletion synctasks entering the critical section at the same time and leading to illegal memory access of base inode in the second syntcask after it was destroyed post shard deletion by the first synctask.
