I know, sorry, and I certainly will have this split out. The above
code snippet was from the much much shorter WireGuard patch (3/3), but
indeed the simd_get/put/relax code is in the monster patch here, so
that'll certainly be split for v2.

That's a great idea. It'll also make it clearer that users shouldn't
just dump a raw "true" in there; raw bools are more tempting to abuse
like that.
