nit: this makes it sound like this lock will be grabbed for all calls
into rpmh-rsc. In fact, it only protects access to the cache.
Ideally name it cache_lock and document that it's for protecting the
cache.

"is generally" implies that sometimes it's not called from the sleep
code. Change to "is always". If "is generally" is more correct, you
can't run lockless right?
