I don't think that has to be either-or. Trivial lock/unlock sequences
are not the first ones that should be converted, but there's an
advantage in having a single patch that converts all possible uses of a
lock. Trivial sequences certainly do not belong in a bigger patch like
this, as they would make the patch even bigger.
