Yes I know - the list kept getting longer and longer everytime I
worked out what was causing something to break. I will have a look
and see if I can change some of those booleans into an "action"
variable as I think that some of them are mutally exclusive.

For some reason I have always thought that acquiring a lock is an
expensive operation and I have tried to avoid release locks only to
acquire them shortly after. Even typing that sounds wrong - locks
should be released ASAP but not before. I know that the locks are
held just prior to uvm_io_done() being called, I will look at
releasing those locks and then acquiring them again in uvm_io_done()
