The following drivers have the same kind of issue.

Drivers with unsafe pthread_mutex:

net/
	af_xdp
	atlantic
	axgbe
	bnxt
	ena
	failsafe (see patch #2)
	hinic
	mlx5
	qede
	vhost
	virtio

raw/	
	ifpga
vdpa/
	ifc
	mlx5


Another alternative would be to create a DPDK wrapper (rte_mutex?)
which had the proper semantics. That might make the Windows port easier.
But it would make backport to stable harder.


If this does not get fixed in April, we should change documentation
to warn users.
