This is a good change.  

However, I don't think it will be sufficient to cure many of the
unionfs locking problems.  Fixing unionfs likely requires use of
reader-writer locks, at least on directories.  (reader-writer locks
will also improve MP scalability..).

I also think that doing it right will require changing the lockmgr to
support true read-intend-write locks...).

(I'm interested in working on this for 1.5...)
