We only have one locking.tdb, indexed by node/device/inode. We have to
make sure that if you share the same file space via different shares
you don't mess up locking. Ralph's proposal fakes up the device on a
per-node basis. This is not 100% bullet proof, as it's based on a hash
into a uint64, but it might help you. The good thing is that this is
per share.
