My patch is nearly the same, but enabled the code to mysqld to work 
properly -- also takes out a questionable pthread #define.  It seems 
to me that mlockall IS available, but 'MCL_CURRENT' is undefined 
unless _P1003_1B_VISIBLE is defined.

Can the mysql folks determine whether mlockall should be used ONLY on SUN_OS?

The patch is as follows:
