Except for the obsfucation by the wrappers it's clearly obvious that
these are plain binary mutexes, so they should be converted. Note that
this will trigger some lockdep warnings as we sometimes hold the same
lock for parent and child. Maybe we can use this as a check if any
users of affs are left :)
