  New Revision: 66381


    thread_pthread.c (native_sleep): sched_yield if GVL uncontended
    Uncontended GVL waitqueue could mean a single CPU setup where
    threads are starved and can't even insert themselves into our
    waitqueue.  So we force other threads to run upon releasing
    the GVL in an uncontended state, in the hope that we can
    avoid entering the slow path of ppoll and similar syscalls.
    This should prevent test/ruby/test_thread.rb::test_signal_at_join
    timeout problems on our single CPU FreeBSD CI machine.
