I don't have time to review this last patch this evening, but one thing
struck me. It seems like the old code went to extra effort to lock all
the write_ref references early in the function, whereas your modified
version doesn't lock them until later. Have you verified that you are
not opening a possible race condition? If so, your commit message
should justify that it isn't a problem. In other words, what does the
code do between the old time of locking and the new time of locking and
why doesn't it care whether the references are locked?
Aside from my other comments, patches 01-10 in the series looked fine.
