Huh, I really didn't expect that to conflict with anything you were
doing as those are basic functions that are only changed a bit and I
didn't find anything that would cause any disturbance in some of your trees.
As for locking I'd rather suggest doing it in the caller of these
functions as they are often bundled together.
Feel free to ignore theses patches if they get in your way. As I said
the next merge window is mostly for you, I just try to get some stuff in
that has a near zero regression potential and that I don't expect to
conflict with yours.
