Prime candidates for conversion to this interface are locks: spinlocks,
rwlocks, mutexes, etc.

a) it'd be interesting to get that done, as a proof-of-usefulness thing.

b) but this code internally uses spinlocks. Will it explode?

also list_heads and hlists. But

a) that might be a bit redundant against the custome debugging which lists
already have and

b) this code uses lists and hlists internally?
