I'm going to leave this one for now, until I've seen the performance analysis.
- Is the argument here that the gain from not checking it twice while the snapshot
is valid outweighs the cost of the extra locking when the snapshot is full and
pending I/O is being failed as rapidly as possible and by that time there'll be
no other threads fighting for that lock?
