Subject: [PATCH -tip/master 1/7] locking/mutex: Unify arguments in lock/unlock slowpaths

Just how the locking-end behaves, when unlocking, go ahead and
obtain the proper data structure immediately after the previous
(asm-end) call exits and there are (probably) pending waiters.
This simplifies a bit some of the layering.
