As expected, these are from locking operations. 0x8 is file descriptor,
which, if I read lsof output correctly, points to config/socket/imap-0.lock
(what would that be?) and 0x7 is F_SETLKW which reads as "set lock or wait
for it to be released" in the manual page.
I'm sure some cyrus expert (Ken? :) can explain immediately the role of
imap-0.lock and all the locking going on around it ... And if there's
anything we can do to speed it up ...
