Is this same bug we have with rt_mutex_setprio or something different?
I'm sorry, but I don't remember anymore :/. It looks like a different
issue, though.

Anyway, the callpath you talked about on IRC seems to make sense, does
what below fix the thing? Could you please point me again to where the
tests you are running are hosted, so that I can easily reproduce the
bug here?

Thanks a lot,

- Juri
