New bug fixes in this release since 2.7.0 have not been applied to the
version 1.x.x series. It is probably time to drop version 1.

Testing and verification
This release has not yet been tested on SMP architechtures. All tests
pass on a uni-processor system. If someone can run the test suite on an
SMP system, please let the list know of any success or failure.

Bug fixes
* Sem_destroy could return EBUSY even though no threads were waiting on
the semaphore. Other races around invalidating semaphore structs
(internally) have been removed as well.

* For WinCE, now checks COREDLL.DLL for InterlockedCompareExchange()
instead of KERNEL32.DLL. This used to be the way it was when the library
checked for TryEnterCriticalSection(), which was removed after that
routine was no longer needed. It was omitted when the technique was
resurrected later for the new purpose. Note: there are no pre-built libs
for WinCE.

New tests
semaphore5.c - tests the sem_destroy bug fix referred to above.
