[Samba] strict locking and kernel oplocks in the smb.conf

1) Does "strict locking = no" negate "kernel oplocks = yes" ?

2) What's the difference between the two?

3) What a good way to test if a file got a lock seen from the linux side and the windows side?

4) If a file has a lock, does that mean you can still open the file in linux or in windows, but can't write to it?

Any clarification between the two would be helpful.
