According to Doug Rabson:
> As part of this work, I have augmented the fcntl flock structure to include 
> an indication of which remote system owns the lock and I have added some 
> infrastructure to support asynchronous locking (not currently exposed to 
> userland but required for the NLM). I have also ported the much of the

> start).

Awesome work, Doug, thanks!
