This interface just seems weird to me. The existing F_*LCK values aren't
really set up to be flags, but are enumerated values (even if there are
some gaps on some arches). For instance, on parisc and sparc:

/* for posix fcntl() and lockf() */
#define F_RDLCK 01
#define F_WRLCK 02
#define F_UNLCK 03

While your new flag values are well above these values, it's still a bit
sketchy to do what you're proposing from a cross-platform interface
standpoint.

I think this would be a lot cleaner if you weren't overloading the
F_SETLEASE command with new flags, and instead added new
F_SETLAYOUT/F_GETLAYOUT cmd values.

You'd then be free to define a new set of "arg" values for use with
layouts, and there's be a clear distinction interface-wise between
setting a layout and a lease.
