With HDDs ? You will not see any difference (and SATA SSDs are not a thing
anymore, enough that we should worry too much. NVMe took over). And that
"big lock" is libata is really an integral part of the design. To remove
it, you will need to rewrite libata entirely...

Which is what libata code comments (mistakenly in many places) always
refer as host lock.
