1. It is not application specific
2. It is not my own application
3. I don't give a damn about performance

I can't understand why people cannot see beyond their own assumptions!
I think I have already made my requirements very clear. If an inode
(file) has already been opened, all other simultaneous open requests
on that inode should fail, irrespective of the application trying to
open it.

If anyone has an answer to the above question, please reply. Otherwise
please, please do not reply.
