Amaury, I think the issue of thread-safety of the io library should be
decoupled from this issue. I don't think it is release-critical that the
io library is thread-safe (and even if it is release-critical, the
problem should be tracked in a different issue, as it requires a
completely independent patch).

The original issue (bytearrays are not thread-safe) will not be
completely resolved (for a certain definition of "thread-safe"): it will
always be possible that one thread observes a locked byte object - this
is by design of the buffer interface, and it is a good design.
