       salvage.lock - Prevents multiple simultaneous salvage operations on a partition


       The salvage.lock file guarantees that only one Salvager (salvager process) runs at a time
       on a file server machine (the single process can fork multiple subprocesses to salvage
       multiple partitions in parallel). As the Salvager initializes, it creates the empty (zero-
       length) file in the /var/lib/openafs/local directory and invokes the flock system call on
       it. It removes the file when it completes the salvage operation. Because the Salvager must
       lock the file to run, only one Salvager can run at a time.
