Implement pthread_cond_broadcast on Windows
See http://www.cse.wustl.edu/~schmidt/win32-cv-1.html, section "The SignalObjectAndWait solution". But note that this implementation does not use SignalObjectAndWait (which is needed to achieve fairness, but we do not need fairness). Note that our implementations of pthread_cond_broadcast and pthread_cond_signal require that they are invoked with the mutex held that is used in the pthread_cond_wait calls.
