Trivial or not it adds up, the stack should make driver authors' job as
easy as possible.  The simplest thing to do would be to add a mutex
around the HW calls.  But that obviously doesn't work for you, cause
you want multiple outstanding requests to the FW for a single tp, right?

How about a RW lock, that would take R on normal add/replace/del paths
and W on replays?  That should scale, no?
