As Danny alluded to, there's a new locking API - and this time, one that
actually isn't just advisory locks; e.g. you can use this to prevent
automounters from mounting devices. I've also written docs for it (and
cleaned up most of the spec); see

The code itself is in master

Comments / questions on both the docs/code welcome. Thanks.
