The LockDev methods act on device locks normally located in /var/lock. The lock
is acquired creating a pair of files hardlinked between them and named after
the device name (as mandated by FSSTND) and the device's major and minor
numbers (as in SVr4 locks). This permits to circumvent a problem using only the
FSSTND lock method when the same device exists under different names (for
convenience or when a device must be accessible by more than one group of
The lock file names are typically in the form LCK..ttyS1 and LCK.004.065, and
their content is the pid of the process who owns the lock.
