       - nbytes = bytes to lock beginning with current file position
       - mode  = locking mode:

                               attempts again;  tries 10 times
               = LK_RLCK       same as LK_LOCK
               = LK_NBLCK      lock region; returns immediately on error
               = LK_NBRLCK     lock region; returns immediately on error
