	libo2dlm is not threaded, so we use libdlm_lt.  I'm getting
EAGAIN returned from dlm_ls_lock_wait() - and this is not a trylock.
I can reproduce with o2dlm_test.  I was about to give you the
instructions on doing so, but I realized it's not trivial - you need the
stack-user kernel modules and to install the tools.
