barebox-state may be run in restricted contexts where /var/lock is not
yet mounted. Introduce a --no-lock option for users that guarantee by
other means that multiple instances of barebox-state won't run concurrently.

Correct operation can be verified with
$ strace barebox-state -i file.dtb --no-lock 2>&1 | grep /var/lock

Please dismiss. This patch was for running barebox-state in a systemd-generator,
which didn't have /var/lock available. /run is however available that early,
so I replaced this patch with Agner's lock in /run patch on my side and
I no longer see a need for this to be merged.
