So if we have this ordering

- checker calls uatomic_xchg() which returns 1 and then gets scheduled
- thread calls uatomic_set() and then runs till it terminates
- checker calls pthread_cancel()

You will get Bart's original bug.  I realize that having the condlog()
after the uatomic_set() in the thread makes this unlikely, but I don't
races like this. I would be happier with simply taking the original code
and moving the condlog(), if neither of my other two options are
acceptable.
