Re: pthread_key_delete issue
Thank you for reporting and fixing this. The error was indeed introduced
after 2.8.0, i.e. when I changed to use MCS locks in this part of the code.
There will be a new test also for this to make sure it doesn't regress
I will update the CVS repository on sourceware.org soon and a little
earlier to the Git repository at:

after migrating from 2.8.0 version to 2.9.1 version, I have an issue with pthread_key_delete function.
Sometimes, the application on which I work freezes after calling pthread_key_delete.
In fact, the app is stopped on this line: ptw32_mcs_lock_release (&keyLock) (line 106 into pthread_key_delete.c file)
It seems to be reproduced only when the specific data key concerns several threads.
The explanation is maybe inside the pthread_key_delete implementation:
int pthread_key_delete (pthread_key_t key)
ptw32_mcs_lock_acquire (&(key->keyLock), &keyLock);
while ((assoc = (ThreadKeyAssoc *) key->threads) != NULL)
The freeze always occurs when the program try to release the key lock a second time. I don't know if it's supposed to be supported.
Release the key lock outside the while loop seems to fix the issue.
Thanks for help.
