Hi Paul,

Locking is part of the core GlusterFS protocol but the NFS server module 
does not have NLM support yet(NLM is the locking protocol associated with 
NFSv3). On linux, the workaround is generally to mount with the -o nolock 
option although I dont see why excluding this option results in stale file 
handle and other errors. let me go through the complete thread, I'll reply 

Today, if locking among multiple client machines is a must-have, you'll 
have to use FUSE.
