(X-posted to sr-dev as this is getting into the nitty gritty)

As a short-term workaround for this, I've been playing with the 
preloaded library approach to hijack the pthread mutex calls and force 
them to provide process-shared mutexes. AFAICT this seems to be working 
and only has the minuscule performance impact of using slower 
process-shared mutexes in all instances, even when they aren't required.

The code for the preloaded library itself is very short and simple: 

As a more complete patch that integrates it into the build system 
(probably badly): 

Finally it requires adding it to the startup script, for example in a 
systemd service file as:


(that's with a hard coded path which isn't optimal of course).

I don't consider this a proper fix, but only a hacky workaround, but it 
might be a solution for the very near future. Throwing it out there in 
case other people have been working on similar approaches, and/or maybe 
have some comments about this.
