That wold probably the best option. lockdev could just go straight
into /run/lockdev/ then, and leave the silly shared directory with
magic filenames alone.
It's kind of weird, to invent any new subdir there, keeping in mind
how broken the entire concept is. I really doubt, that any other
software will or should be changed to look directly for files in this
All in all I don't think /var/lock/lockdev/ makes much sense at all,
and I don't think it should be done in systemd.
