You might have better luck adding priority inheritance to the
unix-jthread threading system, as the locking, unlocking, and
scheduling are all under Kaffe's control.

If you really want to use pthreads, you could try cheating (for
example, manually tweaking a thread's priority when it takes/releases
a lock).

 Indifference may cause the downfall of mankind, but who really cares?
