tdb_open_ex() has

        if (tdb_flags & TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING) {
                tdb_flags |= TDB_INCOMPATIBLE_HASH;

so the tdb_flags |= TDB_INCOMPATIBLE_HASH; in your patch should not be

However there's an interaction between TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING and

Maybe we want something like this?

+		if (tdb_flags & TDB_CLEAR_IF_FIRST) {
+			if (tdb_runtime_check_for_robust_mutexes()) {
+				tdb_flags |= TDB_MUTEX_LOCKING;
+			}
+		}
