Bug#361039: libc6: bad regcomp initialization, fixed upstream

After initializing a mutex, regcomp zeros the structure. On
architectures that have non-zero free lock values (e.g., hppa) this
results in deadlock.
The following patch fixes the problem.

Are you sure of the version against which you reported the bug? This
patch is present in the package since the version 2.3.6-4. With it I was
able to run the testsuite again.
