I don't see the problem yet

Consider i realize a scheduler in which i can push many coroutines.

Yes, that is possible. The continuations are not bound to threads.

Sorry, but I don't see your point yet.

It's been a while since I wrote that library but...
Frankly speaking I don't see the need for synchronization.
The state is handled per thread and it then creates a new continuation.
There is no mutation an no need for synchronization - unless your code
requires it.
