Umm... I can live with that, assuming that we don't have callbacks
that take i_mutex themselves. AFAICS, everything we call there is
either obviously not touching i_mutex or is already called while we
hold i_mutex elsewhere, but I'd appreciate if somebody actually
tested that sucker for different versions of protocol...
