      Description

      Due to SERVER-1423, mongodump is likely to hang if dumping an fsyncLocked server. Besides emphasizing in the docs that one shouldn't lock the server before dumping, I propose another workaround:

      mongodump should check if the server is locked, and terminate with a helpful error message if so.
