So working with locks and text-files is generally stupid to do with git
since you don't use git merging capabilities. Working with binary files
in git is stupid because git doesn't handle them very well because they
the deltas can't be calculated very good.

It seems to me that if you need to do locking one of the above scenarios
is true for you and you should not use git at all.

However, there's always the case when you've a mixed project with both
binary and text-files. In that case I believe Jeff gave an excellent answer.

But think twice, are you using git in a sane way? Even a small binary
file will result in a huge git repo if it's updated often and the
project has a long history.
