After other RPMH email threads, it's possible that this patch isn't
quite right. ...but also the code wasn't quite right before.

Specifically if we have 0 active TCSs then it's possible that we've
used a wake TCS to send an active-only request. That would be a case
where "tcs_in_use" might be set and we'd need to make sure that
tcs_invalidate() checks it. However:

1. We need to add locking to tcs_invalidate() since "tcs_in_use" is
protected by drv->lock and tcs_invalidate() didn't grab that lock.

2. We should add documentation explaining the situation.

I'm still waiting on overall review / testing of my series, but I'll
put it on my list to address this for v2.
