  New Revision: 60386


    file.c: apply2files releases GVL
    This means File.chmod, File.lchmod, File.chown, File.lchown,
    File.unlink, and File.utime operations on slow filesystems
    no longer hold up other threads.
    The platform-specific utime_failed changes is compile-tested
    using a new UTIME_EINVAL macro
    This hurts performance on fast filesystem, but these methods
    are unlikely to be performance bottlenecks and (IMHO) avoiding
    pathological slowdowns and stalls are more important.
    benchmark results:
    minimum results in each 3 measurements.

    Speedup ratio: compare with the result of `trunk' (greater is better)

    file_chmod	0.737
