For OpenVZ it needs s/CAP_SYS_ADMIN/CAP_VE_SYS_ADMIN/ to be able to use
the feature by in-CT root programs.  But given it doesn't go to
upstream, it's unlikely to be needed.

As for the implementation, it looks it's ready and it passes lock.c
tests.  But, as usual, additional testing doesn't hurt :)
