I'm going to remove the mplock shims in our global tokens in
master, essentially running the related code mpsafe from this point
There are still numerous global code bits that use the mplock
directly, though mostly out of the critical path now.
The next major bit of work to improve MP performance is going to be
dealing with wide-ranging vm_token.
