Yeah I mean kinda expected that because:
- everything's protected with ww_mutex anyway
- importer needs to keep track of mappings anways
So really all it needs to do is not be stupid and add the mapping it just
created to its tracking while still holding the ww_mutex. Similar on

With that all we need is a huge note in the docs that importers need to
keep track of their mappings and dtrt (with all the examples here spelled
out in the appropriate kerneldoc). And then I'm happy :-)
