This doesn't seem safe at all, here we are returning a pointer to
memory from the interval tree with out any kind of lifetime
protection.

If the interval tree is read it must be left in the read lock state
until the caller is done with the pointer.

.. and this poses all sorts of questions about consistency with items
on the deferred list. Should find return an item undergoing deletion?

Should find return items using the old interval tree values or their
new updated values?
