Can be handled after merge. Yes, lock is probably needed...

> In general the logic seems suspect.  Looks like the intent is to move all existing files
into a delta_x_x/ when a plain table is converted to MM table.  This seems like something
that needs to be done from under an Exclusive lock to prevent concurrent Insert operations
writing data under table/partition root.  But this is too late to acquire locks which should
be done from the Driver.acquireLocks()  (or else have deadlock detector since acquiring them
here would bread all-or-nothing lock acquisition semantics currently required w/o deadlock
