Ok.  Even if it is a gcc bug, if I am understanding this correctly,
it should not occur if I install the latest version of the headers
in /usr/include/..., which is what I do when I test a new release.

I make a proposed release, install it on my system, copy the DLL and
libcygwin.a to the cygwin build area and then do a "make clean check"
in the testsuite.  That should end up using the latest headers no
matter what, AFAICT.

In this scenario, with the recent reversion of your patch to pthread.h,
I still get two pthreads errors:

Assertion failed: (success = PTHREAD_MUTEX_DEFAULT == PTHREAD_MUTEX_ERRORCHECK), file /cygnus/src/uberbaum/winsup/testsuite/winsup.a
pi/pthread/mutex5.c, line 18

Assertion failed: (pthread_mutex_lock(&mutex) == EDEADLK), file /cygnus/src/uberbaum/winsup/testsuite/winsup.api/pthread/mutex6d.c,
line 28

How do we proceed here?  I also get this kind of error if I build
everything from scratch and do the standard make; make check.
