+ * r1611380, r1611381, r1619071, r1647339
+   Use simple apr_thread_mutex_t instead of apr_thread_rwlock_t as a workaround
+   for performance and consistency problems in APR read/write locks
+   implementation on Windows. The APR read/write locks implementation is
+   currently known for two long standing problems:
+   - Windows and OS/2 rwlock sometimes allows a writer to take the lock while
+     a reader has the lock (APR issue 45455)
+   - Read-write locks are very slow on Windows due usage of kernel-mode
+     CreateMutex instead lightweight criticial section used for apr_mutex_t.
+   Justification:
+   - In memory cache data corruption in race-condition on Windows
+   - 10-15% performance regression since 1.7.x   Discussion:
+     Subject: FSFS caching and apr_thread_rwlock_t performance on Windows

+   Notes:
+     r1611380 contains the fix itself.
+     r1611381 and r1619071 are the follow-up commits to fix compilation errors.
+     r1647339 fixes error leak introduced in r1611380.
