    It really should be the "files" pointer, and I think we'd better just
    change the order so that the files pointer is still accessible at close
    time when the lock is removed. The fs pointer is _not_ guaranteed to be
    the same across threads - there may be threads that share the same files
    but not the same fs pointer.
