Thanks, at last this can solve my issue for the moment.

But could you provide me a setup (linux kernel version/ glibc version ?) 
  where kernel oplocks works ?

(by the way, smb.conf manual say about the kernel oplocks parameters: " 
This parameter defaults to on ... You should never need to touch this 
parameter." Maybe this statement should be changed.)
