As far as I remember, we don't query the lock directory's existence, we
just try to create it and see whether it fails or not.  Since directory
creation is supposed to be atomic, even under NFS, I would argue that
any NFS implementation that returns based on a cache rather than waiting
for the server response is just plain broken.
