After some more thought, here is another idea: PTHREAD_MUTEX_ROBUST is no
longer a property of the mutex, but a property of the lock.

So a normal unique_lock will map the behaviour of PTHREAD_MUTEX_STALLED
(i.e. a non-robust mutex) while an unique_robust_lock will still succeed to
acquire a mutex whose process died while holding a lock (and then user has
to check whether acquired lock is consistent). If there are multiple locks
waiting to acquire the mutex whose process crashed, only a
unique_robust_lock will succeed in acquiring the mutex.
