I think you guys are talking past each other. F_RDLCK | F_LAYOUT can
be broken to allow writes to the file / layout. The new unbreakable
case would require explicit SIGKILL as "revocation method of last
resort", but that's the new incremental extension being proposed. No
changes to the current behavior of F_RDLCK | F_LAYOUT.

Dave, the question at hand is whether this new layout lease mode being
proposed is going to respond to BREAK_WRITE, or just BREAK_UNMAP. It
seems longterm page pinning conflicts really only care about
BREAK_UNMAP where pages that were part of the file are being removed
from the file. The unbreakable case can tolerate layout changes that
keep pinned pages mapped / allocated to the file.
