[pacman-dev] [PATCH] move db lock/unlock to the transaction functions

$ sudo touch /tmp/pacman.lck
$ sudo pacman -Sg
error: failed to initilize alpm library (unable to lock database)
error: library not initialized

is this normal? of course not

we should only lock the database when a transaction begins, and
we should unlock the database as soon as the transaction ends

also move the PM_LOCK define to the public header so that fronends
can print out a more usable error message (ie. like pacman2 did)
