So, which code does your initial entrypoint execute? As I wrote
before, the initial entrypoint is responsible for completing the I/O
operations in Libc components. In other words, if the initial
entrypoint does not block and then handle libc I/O signals, other
threads blocked in the libc will never resume.

No, I was just curios ;-)
