Here's the patch. I've just disabled the EINTR test module entirely
since it's full of wrong code including broken attempts at
synchronization based on a volatile variable, and attempts to unlock a
lock that's already unlocked.

Note that the setuid race test will not work without root, and I don't
think it's reliable anyway. There's an alternate test for this issue
on the glibc bug tracker:
