Implements (in lock_ops.h & lock_alloc.h):

	simple locks:
	type: gen_lock_t
	gen_lock_t* lock_alloc();                - allocates a lock in shared mem.
	gen_lock_t* lock_init(gen_lock_t* lock); - inits the lock
	void    lock_destroy(gen_lock_t* lock);  - removes the lock (e.g sysv rmid)
	void    lock_dealloc(gen_lock_t* lock);  - deallocates the lock's shared m.
	void    lock_get(gen_lock_t* lock);      - lock (mutex down)
	void    lock_release(gen_lock_t* lock);  - unlock (mutex up)
	lock sets:
	type: gen_lock_set_t
	gen_lock_set_t* lock_set_alloc(no)               - allocs a lock set in shm.
	gen_lock_set_t* lock_set_init(gen_lock_set_t* set);  - inits the lock set
	void lock_set_destroy(gen_lock_set_t* s);        - removes the lock set
	void lock_set_dealloc(gen_lock_set_t* s);        - deallocs the lock set shm.
	void lock_set_get(gen_lock_set_t* s, int i);     - locks sem i from the set
	void lock_set_release(gen_lock_set_t* s, int i)  - unlocks sem i from the set

WARNING: - lock_set_init may fail for large number of sems (e.g. sysv). 
         - signals are not treated! (some locks are "awakened" by the signals)
