mutex lock can be initialized automatically with DEFINE_MUTEX()
rather than explicitly calling mutex_init().

This patch looks like a resend of this one (but with a different revision
number):
https://lkml.org/lkml/2020/12/24/229

A resend should always maintain the version number and be clearly marked
as a resend.  In this case, there is also a pending review comment that
you have ignored.  Given I also clarified when you asked (off-list) for
additional details I'm very surprised to see this patch circulated again
without modification.

I have repeated the feedback below.
