Where is the locking here that seems to be required when a hcd is
removed from the system and you have data in flight? What am I missing
here in the design of this?

And yes, HCDs get removed all the time, and will happen more and more in
the future with the design of more systems moving to Thunderbolt/PCIe
designs due to the simplicity of it.

Where is an "interrupter" defined? I don't know what this term means
sorry, is this in the USB specification somewhere?

Wait, you return a physical address? What are you going to do with
that? And what guarantees that the address is valid after you return it
(again, remember memory and devices can be removed at any point in time.
