Please prefer to use inlined C fucntions. Macros should only be used if
there is some reason why an inlined fucntion will not work.

Ditto.

Please use mutexes where possible. Semaphores should only be used when
their counting feature is employed. And, arguably, in situations where a
lock is locked and unlocked from different threads, because this presently
triggers mutex debugging warnings, although we should find a way of fixing
this in the mutex code.

I can't say I like the name "lock_dentry" much. It sounds like a VFS
function and we may well gain a generic lock_dentry() at some time in the
future. unionfs_lock_dentry() would be a better choice.
