For reference, this is the thread:


Perhaps you didn't see my reply?
The fix would have to be in gnulib,
and to start on that work, it would help
to know precisely what versions of FreeBSD are affected.
More importantly, we'd need code to detect the problem:

    Do you know of a way to test for this bug?
    With that, we should be able to write a gnulib
    module that would transparently replace
    pthread_mutex_init with a version that works around the flaw.

At worst, we could make all FreeBSD-compiled systems use a
pthread_mutex_init wrapper function that does the memset.
