I can add that I have run across this bug in the wild. We were using
read_write_mutex in some code, and we started seeing several threads
locking up waiting on either a read lock or a write lock when the
application was under load. There was no reason I could see that at
least one thread couldn't make progress. I changed to a normal mutex and
the problem went away.
