Why do we need the lock ? The IRQ path is serialized, the input
layer open/close are serialized by the input layer and the
initialisation/shutdown paths are also serialized by caller.
The only mess-ups I know of were the create/remove time ones where
there were tiny windows during tear down/start up but those I fixed in
the recent push by simply re-ordering them properly.
