All the procmutex tests pass now! Awesome!

But... now one of the flock tests is failing. It takes a while to
extract a STC from the APR test suite because everything is written in
APR-ese and I have to convert every APR call into the base C library
calls. I'll work on that over the next day or three.

The gist of the test that's failing is this:

 * Create a file.
 * Get an exclusive flock on it.
 * Spawn a child process that attempts to get an exclusive, non-blocking
   lock on the file.

The test is expecting that the child will not be able to get the lock,
but the child is able to.
