Isn't the downside now that we're going to be serializing access to the
different TCSes when two are being written in parallel or waited on? I
thought that was the whole point of splitting the lock into a TCS lock
and a general "driver" lock that protects the global driver state vs.
the specific TCS state.

Can you please split this patch up into 3 or 4 different patches? I'm
not sure why any of these patches are marked with Fixes either. It's an
optimization patch, not a fix patch, unless the optimization is really
large somehow?

This can be a different patch. Why is reading the tcs register
redundant? Please put that information in the commit text.
