Subject: [RFC PATCH 0/6] libxl: New child process handling

This is the first draft of my new libxl API for child process

 1/6 libxl: Fix leak of ctx->lock
 2/6 libxl: abolish libxl_ctx_postfork
 3/6 tools: Correct PTHREAD options in config/StdGNU.mk
 4/6 libxl: Protect fds with CLOEXEC even with forking threads
 5/6 libxl: libxl_event.c:beforepoll_internal, REQUIRE_FDS
 6/6 libxl: event API: new facilities for waiting for subprocesses

Please comment.  I'm particularly keen on comments about:

 * The correctness of the pthread_atfork logic in 4/6.
 * The sufficiency for applications of the child handling API in 6/6.
 * The portability of the pthread command line option changes in 3/6.
 * Correctness :-).

If you want to apply it to make sense of, you'll need to know that
this series is on top of my recently-posted 3-patch libxl event fixup
