Patch for POSIX file locking vs. ``debconf: DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another process''


When using the test Hurd package, version 20060825-3 (from
<http://people.debian.org/~mbanck/hurd-hurd/>), you'll get --- for
example with `apt-get upgrade' --- error messages like ``debconf:
DbDriver "config": /var/cache/debconf/config.dat is locked by another
process''.  Downgrading to the last one from ftp.debian.org, 20060825-2,
makes those errors go away again after restarting the system.

The test package, version 20060825-3, includes the following patch:

  * debian/patches/posix_file_locking.patch: New patch, adding POSIX file
    record locking, by Neal Walfield.

So, this probably needs more work to be usable.
