[unixODBC-dev] [PATCH] Fix for __SQLGetInfo

Hi,

__SQLGetInfo() exits via function_return(), but its callers all expect 
to call this function too.  The effect is that it unlocks the mutex 
earlier than expected, and moreover then releases it a second time 
(possibly after another thread has acquired it).

The effect is intermittent crashes, at least the extremely thread-heavy 
program I am working on.

The attached patch fixes this problem, eliminating the crashes.  I've 
been running my tests against a patched version all day, so I'm pretty 
confident that I've improved the situation l-)
