Calling pop_cleanup() on every iteration is a bit much. Consider the
following patch:

while ((c = p->cleanups) != NULL) {
    p->cleanups = NULL;

You don't even have to change run_cleanups or run_child_cleanups.

Basically, the above code processes the cleanups in batches. Everything that
was initially registered is processed, then everything registerd during the
first cleanup round, etc.

It does not maintain the LIFO behavior where cleanup A registers cleanup B
and expects B to run *just after* cleanup A finishes. If A wanted that, then
it could just calll B. But the most important part: all cleanups *do* get
