I just realized we don't need to put the thing into a struct. We can just
pass &func to pthread_setspecific and do:

    static void do_once()
        once_callback* cb = static_cast

Because a pointer to a function is an object, so a pointer to a pointer to a
function is a pointer to an object :-)

My apologies for spending so much list bandwidth on this minor coding issue.
