We are in the context of do_exit. Not only IRQs are on, also preemption.
And surely no nklock is held.

The gatekeeper holds the gksync token while it's active. We request it,
thus we wait for the gatekeeper to become idle again. While it is idle,
we reset the queued reference - but I just realized that this may tramp
on other tasks' values. I need to add a check that the value to be
null'ified is actually still ours.
