### Contribution description

This commit adds the (pseudo)-module `mutex_cancel`, which unlocks the likewise named function. With this function, a thread blocked with `mutex_lock()` can be unblocked without it obtaining the mutex. A caller of `mutex_lock()` is notified via an `-ECANCELED` return code.

This is intended to simplify the implementation of `xtimer_mutex_lock_timeout()` and to implement `ztimer_mutex_lock_timeout()`.

### Testing procedure

With `tests/mutex_cancel` a test application is provided that must succeed.
