Perhaps the VM, if it can access the host machine partition, will use the
locking translator automatically via host FUSE?

I think we should ask the list about this. Xen can, but I'm not so sure
about OpenVZ.

The main benefit for this approach I think, will be saving the localhost
routing done by host machine, which would translate to saving CPU cycles.
