I'm looking at writing the server side of rpc.lockd.
In order to properly implement this I need to be able to map back the
filehandle sent by the client to the local file to lock (via flock or fnctl).
I just need a file descriptor, I don't need the real path.
Is there a way to do this from userland ?
