There was a performance regression with the -nmw tree relating to a set
of patches which I removed from the tree this morning. That would make
it slower, but not by the amount that you are seeing, and also it would
affect only "normal" I/O and not fcntl locks.

Is there a point in the history of the  -nmw git tree which you know is
ok? Perhaps it would be possible to bisect the tree to find the problem
