Yes, if it is not I forgot something important (like I did in patch 10)
vfio_ccw_fsm_event(private, event) takes the mutex on firering an event.

I have some cases where I do not respect this.
This is false and I must handle this with a new private variable,
this is where I test the state after having fired an event.
I will need to change this, in quiesce, reset, probe and open (others?).

I will see if I can put it inside the patch 01/10 moving state change
out of IRQ context.
