this works, but I think you can avoid the use of the spin lock on the read calls
here. If you assign a global pointer to the value of &lrng_jent_state on init,
you can just take the spinlock on assignment, and assume its stable after that
(which it should be given that its only ever going to point to a static data
structure).
