AFAICT tb_gen_code is called with a mutex held (the sequence is
mutex->tb_find_fast->tb_find_slow->tb_gen_code in cpu-exec.c)
The only call to tb_gen_code that in usermode is not holding
the lock is in cpu_breakpoint_insert->breakpoint_invalidate->
tb_invalidate_phys_page_range->tb_gen_code. I'm not using
gdb so I guess I cannot trigger this.
Am I missing something?

As I said, this problem doesn't seem to be a race.
