But we could spend a lot of time looking at code with nothing wrong with
it just because someone thinks there might be. If you think there's a bug,
prove it! :-)

[scheduler is locked here]

Actually you're looking at either cnt_sem2.cxx or an old version of
cnt_sem.cxx. kapi.cxx uses cnt_sem.cxx.

But whichever version you are thinking of, the code works fine because in
the scheduler's unlock_inner, it will see the thread is now marked as
sleeping and do the reschedule anyway regardless of scheduler lock.

So, believe us now? :-)
