lock/unlock in newlib

I am curious if newlib has reached the point where providing
mutex interface code (*lock, *unlock) is sufficient to make it
thread safe.  The documentation makes it look like it only covers
malloc and setenv/getenv which means the reentrancy structure
still has to be switched for other issues.

Is this correct?  If lock/unlock covers everything, I would
like to use that mechanism.
