I've tested both threaded and non-threaded dlm_ls_lock_wait() and they
seem to work for me.  A mistake that I got hung up on for a while was that
a non-threaded program must link against libdlm_lt, not libdlm.

So, a threaded program needs: -D_REENTRANT -lpthread -ldlm
and a non-threaded program needs: -ldlm_lt

Also, in a threaded program, you need to call dlm_ls_pthread_init(handle);
right after creating the lockspace.  I'm not sure what the symptoms would
be if you left out the pthread_init().  The symptoms when I mistakenly
linked my non-threaded program with libdlm were that dlm_ls_lock_wait()
didn't return at all.
