Thread-safeness of PAM / PAM-modules...



Are there any official 'thou shalt be thread-safe' guidelines for PAM
module writers?

I've just finished writing a few auth modules for our Linux socks5 server
that understand PAM, but this runs (typically) in threaded mode.  I'd hate
to have to use a mutex around all calls to the PAM code when it may not be
needed all the time.
