      GContextSpecificGroup: fix deadlock · 8c104a01
      Allison Karlitskaya authored
      There was a theoretical deadlock between the worker trying to emit a
      signal at the same time as we were waiting for it to shutdown the
      notification (while holding the lock).
      The deadlock was particularly annoying because we didn't really need to
      wait for the shutdown and because it wasn't possible to signals to
      arrive while waiting for a start.  Attempting to deal with start and
      stop in an asymmetric way could have lead to other weird situations,
      Drop the lock while waiting for the worker thread to start.  This means
      that we face the possibility of multiple waiters on the cond at the same
      time, so we need to make more of a state machine.

      Add internal helper GContextSpecificGroup · c90b083f
      Allison Karlitskaya authored
      Add a new internal helper called GContextSpecificGroup.
      This is a mechanism for helping to maintain a group of context-specific
      monitor objects (eg: GAppInfoMonitor, GUnixMountMonitor).
