Default dlm: Reset fs_notified when check_fs_done

Hi list,

Sorry for reposting this mail if you have received it, since it seems
to me that I haven't successfully sent it out, maybe the attachment is
too large. I'll send the attachment separately if anoyone is
interested in it

Hi David,

This patch was made about eight months ago, however, at that time I
have no way to regularly reproduce it and haven't verified if this
patch really works, so I set it aside for so long ...

These months, I also heard of many users reporting this issue but
unfortunately when I requested them to test the patch, most of them
even didn't try it at all

Luckily, things have changed now. One user met this issue two months
ago and he's also very kindly to test the patch. The result is the
patch really works.

Attached is the log before they apply the patch. This time the log
has already included the debugging messages which were added by the
commit 27b09badd40a2d1500500fa6945aeb532f75bd13 , so we can see what
really happens on the user's site.
(The log is a bit large when it was uncompressed, this is because the
spinning would print many messages to the log.)

I rebased the patch against current upstream code now. Thank you for
your review in advance
