Locking is not needed in git, all changes are atomic by design. Sure, if several people mess around commiting stuff at random into the same repo, caos could ensue (but "lock for a commit" won't help here anyway). A solution is to have a real person as a gatekeeper for changes. Or use something like gitolite to provide finer-grained access to a shared repo.
"Large files can't be handled"? That I don't see where it comes from. Sure, early
git versions did handle everything by keeping (compressed) copies of each file contents they came across, but that is long gone now.
