I think nfp_acquire_process_lock() can be modified as I did in 2/2, but
I noticed that there's some reliance on various sysfs files (and I think
you point this out in your response to 2/2 as well) and that may be
problematic for us with ovs2.8+.  I'll do some more digging.

Thanks Alejandro!

Cool.  As I noted, I haven't tested them yet, but once I get time to
test them I will pull in any feedback and resubmit.  I guess if I do,
they should really just be for stable fixes?  Not sure how that would
