Log Message:
In a threads-disabled build, typing Ctrl-C into a raw_input() crashed,
because (essentially) I didn't realise that PY_BEGIN/END_ALLOW_THREADS
actually expanded to nothing under a no-threads build, so if you somehow
NULLed out the threadstate (e.g. by calling PyThread_SaveThread) it would
stay NULLed when you return to Python.  Argh!

Backport candidate.

 Core and builtins
+- Typing Ctrl-C whilst raw_input() was waiting in a build with threads
+  disabled caused a crash.
 - Bug #1165306: instancemethod_new allowed the creation of a method
   with im_class == im_self == NULL, which caused a crash when called.
