Comments on patch #7:

1) Can you prove that put_lock is really necessary, and not covered by other methods of synchronization? Typically the preferred model is that your RX process requires _no_ spinlocks, and instead you use the net stack API to ensure when your RX process is, and is not, running.

otherwise, no objections to this patch
