Yes, you are right, the lock is needed.

The documentation is already correct:

sem_undo_list.list_proc: undo_list->lock for write.

Correct, removing elements is not safe.

Removing one element would be ok, as we hold sem_lock.

But if there are two elements, then we don't hold sem_lock for the 2nd
element, and thus the list is corrupted.
