In libssh we have the same issue. During initialization we need to lock
correctly, specially if we initialize the crypto libraries!
We came up with a solution for that:
ssh_threads_noop is the threading structure that does nothing. It's the
threading callbacks being used by default when you're not using threading. The
first line is not needed. ssh_init() does it if the threading callbacks are
not set yet.
If you use phtreads you can do:
This makes it also possible to implement threading with Windows threads by the
user for example ...
