Implement Git LFS file locking API
Git LFS 2 introduced native file locking for LFS objects. GitLab should implement the LFS file locking API for locking and unlocking files.
Supporting this for EE is already requested in gitlab-ee#1830 (closed). This issue is to request the general implementation and support of Git LFS file locking in Gitlab CE.
- Add LFS File Locking API (LFS 2.0)
- LFS files locked through the Git LFS locking API should be shown with a locked status through GitLab web interface
- LFS files cannot be locked or unlocked through the GitLab web interface

Support new Git LFS file locking
People who want to use the Git LFS file locking feature need the server to support Git LS 2.x.
Make sure these are completed before closing the issue, with a link to the relevant commit.
