locks over clustered filesystem supported now by nfs server

NFS support for locking over e.g. cluster filesystem just went into
mainline kernel today.
Reminds me that it would be nice for them to leverage ctdb if that were
possible (seems unlikely).
Now if I could figure out the exportfs operations we could have them
export nfsd over cifs to Samba (of course a dangerous idea, but probably
no worse than nfs over some of the poorer cluster filesystems today).
