Thanks, I did not realize there were actually more internal
synchronization primitives implemented on top of lll. I will send out
a new version shortly.

May I ask, why are rwlocks unimplemented? Is it just that nobody has
done the work, or are there some unobvious complications?

I'm asking because I happen to have an implementation of rwlocks [0]
that works (passes the test) on the Hurd. It makes use of futex
bitsets (which don't seem to be supported by gsync), but seems to work
just fine without them. And HTL of course has its own rwlocks
implementation. Would it make sense to me to spend some time to try
and write a __libc_rwlock based on them, or are there some obstacles?
