CAPI and thread safety

I am writing an extension module that needs to release the global
interpreter lock during some blocking I/O calls, but I need a mutex in
the C code to make some of the shared data in the extension module are
kept thread safe. Can anyone recommend a portable way to do this? I
could use a pthread mutex, but I do not think that is portable.
Are any of the python mutexes or locks exposed through the C API? I
could not find anything.
