    Windows: Stop the thundering herd
    The afs redirector used notification events to wake up worker
    threads when a task was added to a work queue.  Notification
    events when signalled wake up all threads instead of just one.
    Instead, use synchronization events to wake up a single thread at
    a time and restructure the code to permit workers to wake up
    additional workers if there is additional work to be performed
    or during library shutdown.
    Thanks to Peter Scott for his assistance.
