This locking is unnecessary in single-port non-shared DMA situations
and therefore will impose unnecessary performance loss for basically
all existing supported setups.

Please do this another way.

In fact, I would encourage you to find a way to avoid the new atomic
operations even in multi-port configurations.

Thank you.
