Users could still erroneously launch two `git gc` commands concurrently
and that will not use the maintenance.lock file. The GC lock is worth
keeping around until we redirect the `gc` command to be an alias that
runs `git maintenance run --task=gc [options]`.

Thanks for the pointers to create this test. I'll try to get to it
soon. For now, here is a tracking issue [1].
