I don't think it's *quite* that simple; you do need to check that the
match you got back is a child of the directory you're testing.

(You may have misinterpreted "greater or equal". What brane meant is
that btree won't give you the closest match; it gives you the closest
match which is greater than or equal to the key you asked for. That
might or might not be a child of the directory you're searching for.)

(Hm, also, I think you need to be careful to search for the directory
with a trailing slash, or you might get a lock entry for
"<dirname><char>" where <char> is lexically less than '/', in which case
you wouldn't be sure whether any descendants are locked.)
