This should work. Very elegant, btw :-) Maybe it is better to create a new PR for that implementation and leave this PR as it is for reference? 

Note that by wrapping the mutex into an API now that fact that a mutex can be unlocked from a different context is an implementation detail and no longer part of the API. I suggest instead of `s/mutex/lock/` to also add a wrapper API (e.g. using `static inline` functions) for the mutex API that explicitly allows matching lock and unlock calls to be done from different threads. If there would ever pop up a technical reason to change the mutex implementation to no longer allow unlocks to happen from different thread contexts, the wrapper API would allow to make this happen without breaking code.
