The C# block:

	lock (foo) {

is just syntactic sugar for this:

	System.Threading.Monitor.Enter (foo);
	try {

	} finally {
		System.Threading.Monitor.Leave (foo);

So you're looking for the class System.Threading.Monitor.

Since you'll find interesting stuff in this file, the next
answer will be mono/mono/metadata/monitor.c ;-)
