I'm using fcntl locking over NFS and it seems to work fine.

This is using Linux servers and NetApp filers,  The kernel is 2.6.x
and lockd runs as a kernel thread.  It should work with userspace lockd
though.  Make sure that rpc.statd is running as well. (if it's needed,
it isn't with 2.6 kernels, not sure about *BSD, Solaris, etc.)

I haven't used it, but dotlocking should work.
