mutex lock can be initialized automatically with DEFINE_MUTEX()
rather than explicitly calling mutex_init().

NACK. This is not the first time people try to "fix" this location...

Using DEFINE_MUTEX() does not gain anything for us, it will generate
unnecessary extra size for the bcache.ko.

Hmm, maybe if you compose a patch to add comments for bch_register_lock,
for something like: Don't initialize global variable here. It might be
helpful for noticing people not to fixing this in future.

Thanks.

How can the final binary have larger size by just static declaration?
By using DEFINE_MUTEX, the mutex is initialized at compile time. It'll
save initialization at run time and one line of code will be less also
from text section. 

#### with no change (dynamic initialization)
size drivers/md/bcache/bcache.ko
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
 187792	  25310	    152	 213254	  34106	drivers/md/bcache/bcache.ko

#### with patch applied (static initialization)
   text	   data	    bss	    dec	    hex	filename
 187751	  25342	    120	 213213	  340dd	drivers/md/bcache/bcache.ko

Module's binary size has decreased by 41 bytes with the path applied
(x86_64 arch).

Anybody has any thoughts on it?

I think you're right and the response is puzzling.  But who cares?  It's
a small thing.  Leave it and move on.

I am waiting for Yongjun's v4 patch to update the commit log, which was
suggested by Pavel Goran.
