File locking program



Here's the source of a locking program you can use to lock files for
the NFS test.  Build by saving the source somewhere and

	gcc -o setalock setalock.c

Running it as

	./setalock -w /path/to/test/file

will acquire a WRITE lock on the entire file.  Omitting the "-w":

	./setalock /path/to/test/file

will acquire a read lock on the entire file.  In either case, hit
"CTRL-C" to stop the program and release the lock.
