We could run this without the lock, since we are only reading a status.
Generally, this function is called from the idle code of the last CPU
and no CPU or active TCS request should be in progress, but if it were,
then this function would let the caller know we are not ready to do
idle. If there were no requests that were running at that time we read
the registers, we would not be making one after, since we are already
in the idle code and no requests are made there.

I understand, how it might appear racy, the context of the callling
function helps resolve that.
