This is probably best left as a comment, or you could expand and explain why the RW lock provides the level of exclusive access the OP is seeking.

comment Locking on data vs locking on functions
Lock requests could be expensive, but I would worry about that cost until I was sure that my data access was correct and safe. From there, I'd profile the system to make sure it was operating within reasonable limits. And if there's a problem, I'll strip as much extra code out of the locked routine as possible.

comment Are all magic numbers created the same?
@NoctisSkytower My team prefers to use explicit division statements instead of bit shifting operators because of the multiple languages we use and potentially inconsistent implementation across those languages. Likewise, negative values are inconsistently handled with bitwise shifting. While we may not necessarily have negative byte values, we certainly have negative values with other units of measure that we convert.

comment Are all magic numbers created the same?
Good counter answer. It would be stronger if you took into account individual team culture. If you believed my SE profile, I'm old enough to predate those particular standards. So the only confusion comes from "what's the current (non-)standard term?" And you'd likely be safe in assuming I work with a team of fellow dinosaurs who all have the same terminology (non-)difficulties.
