I have included a lightly modified version of this patch on head, I do
not see any crash. However, I have some doubts about the current
implementation: calling xnselector_destroy() opens opportunities for a
rescheduling, which I am not sure is really what we want in the middle
of xnpod_delete_thread(). Philippe, what do you think?
