As you know, some of us are not entirely in agreement there. I don't think you can do a complex driver without being aware of locking; trying to hide it looks to me like an attempt to return to the good old days of uniprocessor systems. I don't know of any other kernel subsystem which tries to hide locking in the midlayers in this way - though there almost certainly is one somewhere.
