Apparently getc_unlocked() is in the Single Unix spec.  Not sure how
widespread that is -- do Linux developers pay attention to this
standard at all?  According to the webpage it's (c) 1997.

Subject: getc_unlocked note


i was reading the python-dev archives and saw that someone had noticed
my getline/getc_unlocked post from the newsgroup. a correction to the
python-dev thread: getc_unlocked and friends are infact standard (not c99
though since c99 doesn't specify threads); they are part of the single
unix specification.
