I don't agree with this completely. Process-shared mutexes are
fundamentally not supported by our lwp_park/lwp_unpark interface without
jumping through a lot of hops. Failing the enable call therefore is
huge semantic change and checking for a working function a much harder
requirement than checking for the presence of a function.
