  Fix the problem with the C++ exception handling for the multithreaded
  From the PR description:
  The gcc runtime's _Unwind_Find_FDE function, invoked during exception
  handling's stack unwinding, is not safe to execute from within multiple
  threads. FreeBSD' s dl_iterate_phdr() however permits multiple threads
  to pass through it though. The result is surprisingly reliable infinite
  looping of one or more threads if they just happen to be unwinding at
  the same time.
  Introduce the new lock that is write locked around the dl_iterate_pdr,
  thus providing required exclusion for the stack unwinders.
