* We are the last thread to arrive at the barrier before it releases us.
* Move our MCS local node to the global scope barrier handle so that the

* Any threads that have not quite entered sem_wait below when the
* multiple_post has completed will nevertheless continue through
* the semaphore (barrier).

* Use the non-cancelable version of sem_wait().
* It is possible that all nInitialBarrierHeight-1 threads are
* at this point when the last thread enters the barrier, resets
* nCurrentBarrierHeight = nInitialBarrierHeight and leaves.
* If pthread_barrier_destroy is called at that moment then the
* barrier will be destroyed along with the semas.
