Hello Adrian,

I did not take the htt->tx_lock lock for this since it should not be
needed.

There are however some compiler optimizations that you have to look out
for:
https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git/tree/Documentation/memory-barriers.txt?h=v4.17-rc6#n1547

I can't see that any of the examples applies, but let's add READ_ONCE(),
to make sure that the compiler doesn't try to optimize this.

Will send a V2 for this.

Regards,
Niklas
