Discard the above, now I'm looking in your patch...

The following should be changed, I think:
1. "GC_has_static_roots_func callback" decl should be before any statement (i.e. before "if (GC_no_dls) return;");
2. also add "DCL_LOCK_STATE;" local var decl.
3. if "callback var is 0 then there's no need to execute GC_dyld_name_for_hdr();
3. replace GC_add_roots() call with 
// DARWIN_DEBUG goes here...
    GC_add_roots_inner((ptr_t)..., (ptr_t)..., FALSE);
4. put callback call after LOCK (since currently the callback is invoked with the alloc lock held).
