A quick look at:
suggests that there is a connection between reentrancy
and thread safety, So I would say that malloc is not thread safe.

So malloc is NOT thread safe. But can i know some conditions which i
should consider to make my own function thread safe.
i've developd my own memory allocator and now want to make it safe for
can i get the key points to be considered.
