Yes, I think there are several bits strange in the process/thread startup
on the Linux side. I'm hoping to clean much of that up in the
NativeProcessLinux code. I think it might be cruft related to the two-step
startup that Linux uses for threads, where the thread itself announces that
it is created to the superior, and the main process thread also notifies
the superior, with no guarantee of the order of arrival, and both must
finish arriving before the existing code can run without getting confused.
(This is a guess based on my diving into the code for NativeProcessLinux).
I think a little state machine there might allow that bit to be cleaned up
without the dancing it currently does.
This is really a temporary work-around just to get tests out of the hung
state on Linux.
I expect some combination of Ed on FreeBSD or Luke at Codeplay (not sure
what platform) to address with one of their patches in the works, or
something I can adapt to Linux.
