Csf will not start and I am getting errors in /var/log/messages

If you are seeing these lines in /var/log/messages:

Jan 1 21:01:32 [server hostname] csf[1234]: Another app is currently holding the xtables lock. Perhaps you want to use the -w option?
Jan 1 21:01:32 [server hostname] csf[1234]: Error: iptables command [/sbin/iptables -v --policy INPUT DROP] failed, at line 1357

If you are running CentOS 7, you need to enable WAITLOCK in csf.conf and save the csf configuration. Restart csf and then lfd, in that order.
