Does AFS support read-locks, and write locks on RW volumes? That is, can a
client just read-lock a file on a RW volume? And if another client comes
along and write locks the file, are the other read locks invalidated? Or
does it just lock(no separate read lock or write lock) a file? What specific
calls are used for this locking purpose?
