Re: pthread coldfire thread lockup under stress

May this be related to these problems? Threads at:

In those cases, I think there are two threads, and one is waiting
for the other, hence 0% CPU in the end. I suspected that the code
changing the wait condition never gets run. (I even considered
adding some yield-like call to the atomic routines, but have not
done more yet.)

How does one do that? I’ve got almost no idea about parallel
