Thinking about this some more, I like it even less.
VOP_ISLOCKED is actually documented by the man page to return either 0
or 1. Not some LK flag. The fact that some filesystems are lazy and
just feed up lockstatus doesn't mean lockstatus is broken. It means
tmpfs_islocked and ufs_islocked are broken. The code currently in the
tree is (at long last) compliant with the man page.
