PATCH: Provide runtime intialization of _STL_mutex_lock class


I have tweaked the patch to initialize the _STL_mutex_lock class mutex
at runtime.  There is now a single global mutex to ensure that the class
mutex is only initialized once.  I would greatly appreciate your comments
and suggestions on improving the patch.

The advantage of having this patch installed is that _STL_mutex_lock
objects can be intialized with the _STL_MUTEX_INITIALIZER on systems
that require a function call for mutex initialization (eg., hpux 10.20).
As a result, they can be treated with exactly the same methodology as 
they would on systems where the mutex can be initialized using an
aggregate initializer.  _M_initialize no longer needs to called to
initialize the object.  The STL allocator should now work correctly
for systems that define __GTHREAD_MUTEX_INIT_FUNCTION.

There is a separate patch to gthr-dce.h which is needed to define
__GTHREAD_MUTEX_INIT_FUNCTION and correct various other minor problems.
I will send it in a separate email.

I have tested this patch under hpux 10.20 with DCE threads and done
a v3 check with -static, -threads, -fPIC and "" with no regressions
of FAILs attributable to the patch.  I also tried an abreviated test
using the STL memory leak program that you have posted.  If anyone is
interested, I have a patch for gthr-posix.h that allows testing using
the __GTHREAD_MUTEX_INIT_FUNCTION mode on systems with posix threads.

This was tested on the 3.0 branch.
