Nope, regfunc_mutex makes sure there is no disable/enable occuring
concurrently. They only take a tasklist read lock, so they can happen
concurrently if it wasn't for the regfunc_mutex.

Unless I'm missing something totally obvious about the refcount, the
mutex is needed, and there is no need to go for an atomic type in this
case.
