@kaspar030: How about making `mutex_lock()` return `void` and provide `mutex_lock_may_fail()` in addition? Code not checking the return code of `mutex_lock_may_fail()` would be an obvious red flag.

This would likely yield a bit more ROM use, but this would also get rid of the performance penalty to `mutex_lock()` that using the `core_mutex_cancel` module results in. To me, it makes much more sense if that performance penalty is only paid by callers of `mutex_lock_may_fail()`.
