I considered that as well and it makes sense for the simple local
filesystem case where you just track ownership based on fl_owner_t.

But...what about lockd? It considers ownership to be a tuple of the
nlm_host and the pid sent in a lock request. I can't seem to wrap my
brain around how to make such an approach work there. I'll confess
though that I haven't tried *too* hard yet though since I had bigger
problems to sort through at the time. Maybe we can consider that for a
later set?
