I really doubt this will work for Plumbers, sorry. And technical things
don't work well, if at all, at Kernel Summit.

We have had meetings about this at the past two Plumbers conferences,
where none of these things came up (i.e. dislike of the D-Bus model).

I'll be glad to discuss this at both places, but let's try to work
through the technical things through email, as really, that's the best
place for it.

Al just proved this by pointing out some issues to be resolved (RW lock
only used as a W lock, odd atomic values and locking without documenting
the lifecycles, etc.) And that's the way this is supposed to work,
nothing new/different here that I can see.
