The principle wait here is for the HW (even after fixing all the locks
to be not so coarse, we still have to wait for the HW to finish its
access). The first pass would be then to not do anything here if

Jerome keeps on shaking his head and telling us we're doing it all
wrong, so maybe it'll all fall out of HMM before we have to figure out
how to differentiate between objects that can be invalidated immediately
and those that need to acquire locks and/or wait.
