Add LockException to locks for completeness

All is well, except for the Specific Exception "Resource Unavailable" (IO Error #11) which usually means the file is already locked.

Rather then doing an

except IOError, err:
     if err[0] == 11:
         "Do something with Already Locked"

on can simply have a LockException in locks

Not sure if this was a design thought at the beginning, or just a little omission.

This follows from the version on

I'm not sure how to do this on windows, perhaps someone else knows?

django.core.files.locks only exists for internal use, which means unless something else in django.core.files needs a change like this, we don't need to make it. Since this isn't needed by the core, there's no reason to make this change.
