This is the kind of sentence up with which I shall not put!

How about "This means that they are inherited across fork() like BSD
  (flock) locks, and they are automatically released when the last
  reference is released for the file they were acquired against.

Even that is a bit too convoluted for my tastes.  Better suggestions
welcome.
