		 * unlocking in the child will try to schedule
		 * threads, and either the internal mutex interlock or
		 * the runqueue spinlock could have been held at the
		 * moment of fork(). Since the other threads do not
		 * exist in this process, the spinlock will never be
		 * unlocked, and we would wedge.
		 * Instead, we reinitialize atfork_lock, since we know
		 * that the state of the atfork lists is consistent here,
		 * and that there are no other threads to be affected by
		 * the forcible cleaning of the queue.
		 * This permits double-forking to work, although
		 * it requires knowing that it's "safe" to initialize
		 * a locked mutex in this context.
		 *
		 * The problem exists for users of this interface,
		 * too, since the intented use of pthread_atfork() is
		 * to acquire locks across the fork call to ensure
		 * that the child sees consistent state. There's not
		 * much that can usefully be done in a child handler,
		 * and conventional wisdom discourages using them, but
		 * they're part of the interface, so here we are...
