It seems to me you are referring to the recent changes you made for kernel

However, note that Red Hat 7.0 (the poster uses that) is not kernel 2.4.x,
it's 2.2.16/19. So the problem the poster was referring to was not related
to kernel oplocks, but to the famous "oplock_break" that spans kernel and
samba versions.
