This isn't needed.  Any time a file descriptor is used, a call
should first be made to _FD_LOCK() which ends up calling
_thread_fd_lock() which then calls _thread_fd_table_init()
for the file descriptor.

If there's a reason that this is necessary, then I think it
is just covering up another problem.  I think I made this
same comment a couple of years ago ;-)
