I do not mind moving that outside of the PF_* space. Unless I
misremember all flags in this space were intented to be set only on the
current which rules out any RMW races and therefore they can be
lockless. I am not sure this holds for the bitfield you are adding this
to. At least in_memstall seem to be set on external task as well. But
this would require double checking. Maybe that is not really intended or
just a bug.
