BTW, I am amazed all these s/idx/irx/ bugs exist and no one noticed
them.

I guess nothing uses these irq variants. In fact, grepping the
source... wow, not much uses brlocks at all. Only registered lock is
BR_NETPROTO_LOCK. A read lock on it is called only 7 times and a write
lock is used 31 times.

Everything must of moved over to using RCU or something. It makes me
question the future of these things.
