They are inappropriate.  In fact, the whole thing is inappropriate -- what
is the point in having a butt-slow cache?

+1 on the patch and removing the mutex, but I think a long-term solution
would be based on advisory locks around a shared-memory API (even if the
shared memory was simply backed by apr_dbm).
