Yup, I have no negative plans for netnatm in mind -- I actually did the basic 
locking work for it a few years ago, although was never able to test it 
properly due to lack of ATM test hardware.  netatm was a sufficiently 
complicated subsystem as to make that impossible.  If you have any bug reports 
regarding locking and netnatm, I'm happy to field them.  I put a basic 
subsystem lock around netnatm, but you could imagine something more granular 
if performance results suggested that would be useful.
