These are usually better expressed as lockdep assertions.  I don't see any 
reason why they wouldn't work here.

So I know we'd said before that we weren't going to take this until there's 
hardware, but I think the QEMU support is good enough -- I don't really care if 
the ISA says this might change, it's been in there for long enough.

LMK if you're going to send a v5 or you want me to just fix it up.

Thanks!
