Under the man page for mount_nfs, I have the following:

      -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a  
comma sepa-
              rated string of options.  See the mount(8) man page for  
              options and their meanings.  The following NFS specific  
              are also available:
              Historic -o Options
              lockd      Same as not specifying -L.

It doesn't have any other reference to -L. Are mounts specified in  
fstab automatically non-locking, or is the man page incorrect?
