But that's just the heart of my question :( How to test if given thread
is waiting on mutex? Or, vice versa, since each process will have it's
own mutex, how to test that there's a thread waiting for given mutex?

But this will increase either load or latency or both :(. I would prefer
the scheduling thread be woken up by releasing it's mutex by the thread
just going to sleep. I need cooperative context multitasking. If you
need, I can elaborate more
