I see, the blocking is there. It should be unnoticeable in practice as
it's locking only a few instructions. The semantics is slighly different
than a plain lock as it needs to check if the exclusive operation is
locked, not the lock itself. If it had to be a true nonblocking trylock,
it would have to check the exclusive_operation value unlocked and either
bail if it's different or recheck it again under lock. This sounds more
complicated than we need.
