Thanks for the tip, but unfortunately, it doesn't look like a good
match. This page
A lock is released when you execute RELEASE_LOCK(), execute a new
GET_LOCK() . . .
So don't really want the lock getting released everytime someone calls
GET_LOCK(). I can't really believe that is the functionality. There is
also a IS_FREE_LOCK() call, but yeah, that leads to total race
conditions. I just tested and did two successive GET_LOCK() calls and
both of them got the lock :( Having a hard time understanding what use
could possibly come from GET_LOCK().

Thanks for the feedback.
