No, HA does not lock the config file, it more or less  makes an API call 
to Qemu->migrate, like:

>     my $upid = PVE::API2::Qemu->migrate_vm($params);
>     $haenv->upid_wait($upid);
with the params:

>         vmid => $vmid,
>         target => $target,

This happens in an forked process which then waits until completion of 
the task.

The HA manager moves the config only when the VM is offline and gets an 
migrate command, which shouldn't be the case here :)
