So why not leave ending it to your fuse_dev_do_write()/fuse_dev_do_read()?
See the reply I'd just sent (your mail arrived while I'd been writing that
one - saw it only after I'd sent mine).

Basically, what if we keep FR_LOCKED through *all* fuse_dev_do_{read,write}(),
rather than dropping and regaining it many times and have fuse_abort_conn()
skip request_end() on FR_LOCKED ones?
