Some work in this area: -
Rearranging rtlsdr_read_async() so that rtlsdr callbacks are not done from
within the libusb callback. This allows you to safely call rtlsdr_* from
within the async callback. - makes device
access threadsafe (in theory), so you can safely call rtlsdr_* from
multiple threads (including while rtlsdr_read_async is running)
