Because it does not lock the lock, just compare:

lock();
__unix_set_addr();
unlock();

to:

lock();
__unix_set_addr();

Clearly the former is more readable and less error-prone. Even
if you really want to do unlock, pick a name which explicitly says
it, for example, __unix_set_addr_unlock().

Thanks.
