Looking at the code now it seems there is a potential race condition.
The commit or rollback can set the flag and issue the broadcast just
before the enter method acquires the lock and blocks in the cv.

I suppose there should be a second check for the flag value under the
lock in the enter_once_region method. The locks in commit and rollback
functions can be removed altogether then.
