I didn't say no, I was trying to see if there's alternatives because the
is_locked pattern has a history of abuse.

If not, then sure we can do this; it's not like I managed to get rid of
muteX_is_locked() -- and I actually tried at some point :/

And just now I grepped for it, and look what I find:

drivers/hid/hid-nintendo.c:     if (unlikely(mutex_is_locked(&ctlr->output_mutex))) {
drivers/nvdimm/btt.c:           if (mutex_is_locked(&arena->err_lock)

And there's more :-(

Also, please just calm down already..
