Note that I can pretty trivially fix this by dropping the pipe lock
while calling pgsigio in pipeselwakeup(), however I will then have to
make sure the callers of pipeselwakeup() can deal with someone else
mucking with the pipe during the call.

Anyhow, wtf doesn't witness print out at least one instance of the
old locking?  Basically let me know where locking is happening in
the other direction?
