I'll have to think about it. Unfortunately, I'll have to put this on the
back-burner for the time being. My primary problem is that I need
a functional driver _now_ (ie by the end of this week), to meet an
upcoming deadline. Due to to the locking problem, I can not rely on the
typec infrastructure ... meaning I have to take two steps back and get
my code working with the Android infrastructure (which, coincidentally,
does not require locking and thus doesn't have all the resulting
limitations and complexities).
