In $HURDSRC/proc/host.c, function S_proc_setexecdata uses std_port_array and
std_int_array without exclusive lock.  This can lead to a kind of corruption
if two threads call this function simultaneously (race condition).  I know
that this is almost impossible to happen, but i'm asking if i patch such
sort of things will the patch be accepted?  Or better wait for a bug-hunting
event that will find all missing mutexes?

BTW What is that description for file_chauthor in $HURDSRC/hurd/fs.defs?
