* Test program that triggers a race between pthread_barrier_wait() and
* pthread_barrier_destroy(): proper synchronization is missing between
* the pthread_barrier_wait() and the pthread_barrier_destroy() calls. This
* test program is based on the example that was posted on February 5, 2009 by
* Christoph Bartoschek on the valgrind-users mailing list. Redistribution of
* the source code below is permitted under the GPLv2 license.

pthread_barrier_init(barrier, NULL, 2);

* The sleep() call below ensures that the pthread_barrier_destroy() call
* happens after the created thread has returned from pthread_barrier_wait().
