Well, SUSv3 says

"The pthread_mutex_lock(), pthread_mutex_trylock(), and pthread_mutex_unlock()
functions may fail if:
The value specified by mutex does not refer to an initialized mutex object."
So it definitely allows NULL and seems to encourage extra mtx->magic checks.
checking with linux (ubuntu hardy), passing a NULL pointer to 
pthread_mutex_trylock() crashes, so I don't think we have to do the checks 
as well.  The root of the problem seems to be somewhere else.
