Re: [patch, fortran] Asynchronous I/O, take 3

another test run on i386-pc-solaris2.11 is underway.  However, may
(all?) gfortran tests now SEGV.  One example is

Program received signal SIGSEGV: Segmentation fault - invalid memory reference.

Backtrace for this error:
Segmentation Fault

Thread 2 received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Obviously __mutex above hasn't been properly initialized.

You seem to have a special fondness for libgfomp ;-)
