Right, but we still hold the ref to it here...

[ Looks more ]

Oooh. No we don't. Exactly because we don't hold the lock, only the
rcu lifetime, the ref can go away from under us. I see what your

Ouch, this is more painful than I expected - the code flow looked so
simple. I really wanted to avoid a new lock during process shutdown,
because that has always been somewhat painful.
