Why is DB_LOCK commented out in dbopen.3?
I see it is used in the libc/db code.
I am curious about it.
I am trying to track down why repeatedly opening my hash database with a
parent and child processes with O_EXLOCK doesn't block when one of the
processes has it open. (I posted about that to netbsd-help.)
I was wondering if DB_LOCK could help, but I see it looks to be for recno
and btree only.
