This seems to have been settled as a "we don't need to go there" already, but just in case; here's an implementation of PTHREAD_MUTEX_INITIALIZER using double-checked locks, and it would probably be repurposable to do pthread_once if needed: https://github.com/kusma/git/commit/c2d7190ed64652c3ac8ea1f2800ff8e7d0b6c01e Yes, it's not pretty, it's error-prone; the best thing would be not to do it. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
