I don't understand statd and lockd as well as I should.  Where exactly
does the takeover server stop serving requests, and the failover server
start?  If this isn't done carefully, you can leave a window between
steps 3 and 4 where a client could acquire a lock before its rightful
owner reclaims it, right?
