This whole function is a bit odd. It seems all masks we want to
manipulate are always guarded by the ap_perms_mutex, and the need for
allowing lock == NULL comes from wanting to call this function with the
ap_perms_mutex already held.

That would argue for a locked/unlocked version of this function... but
looking at it, why do we lock the way we do? The one thing this
function (prior to this patch) does outside of the holding of the mutex
is the allocation and freeing of newmap. But with this patch, we do the
allocation and freeing of newmap while holding the mutex. Something
seems a bit weird here.
