Why do you want to atomically pulse a condvar and acquire a mutex? What do
you mean by pulse, and what do you have in mind when you say "atomically" in
this context? If you acquire the mutex first, then notify/broadcast, how
could your threads detect the non-atomicity of these two actions, and why
are they able to?
