The performance concurrency implications description could just be moved
to the next patch instead of indicating there "As advertised".

For this commit, noting that we are preparing for future release of the
pool lock while one of the upload, download, or wipe volumes operations
is occurring. This means adjusting the asyncJob count to inhibit pool
operations that would be affected by the volume change from occurring
while we're in the process of upload, download, or wipe of a volume and
similarly adjusting the volume in_use count to inhibit other competing
operations from occurring (or something really generic).
