    jqueue: Remove lock status field · 9bdab621
    Michael Hanselmann authored
    With the job queue changes for Ganeti 2.2, watched and queried jobs are
    loaded directly from disk, rendering the in-memory “lock_status” field
    useless. Writing it to disk would be possible, but has a huge cost at
    runtime (when tested, processing 1'000 opcodes involved 4'000 additional
    writes to job files, even with replication turned off).
    Using an additional in-memory dictionary to just manage this field turned
    out to be a complicated task due to the necessary locking.
    The plan is to introduce a more generic lock debugging mechanism in the
    near future. Hence the decision is to remove this field now instead of
    spending a lot of time to make it working again.
