I think the problem here is trying to instantiate bits of the
machine model inside coroutines -- that just sounds wrong to me.
Model and device instantiate should be a straightforward single
threaded bit of code; if it isn't then something needs to be
straightened out so you don't have your chicken-and-egg problem.
