currently the lockdev package includes /etc/tmpfiles.d/lockdev.conf, which ensures that /var/lock/lockdev is properly created. I'd like to move this into the upstream systemd package, so that this trickles down into the other distributions too, so that we can standardize things a bit more and everybody uses the same directories with the same permissions. From all the ways the various distributions have set up /var/lock and subdirectories the Fedora way seems the most reasonable and the folks from the other distros appear to agree, so we should go for it and make it official and gently push everybody who uses systemd to adopt this too.
I am assuming you are OK with this, hence I'll include the line for /var/lock/lockdev in the upload of systemd I am currently preparing for F15. I hope that's fine with you. All that's missing would be that you just drop the file from the lockdev rpm.
Hope that sounds good to you?

If the FHS ever comes to life again, I'd like to see this standardized.
