[tsan] Fix synchronization in dispatch_sync

Authored by kubamracek on Mar 27 2016, 2:07 PM.



In the interceptor for dispatch_sync, we're currently missing synchronization between the callback and the code *after* the call to dispatch_sync. So we'll false report a race in:

// now executing on a background queue/thread
dispatch_sync(main_queue, ^{ // "main_queue" forces the callback to be executed on a different thread
  x = 42;
print(x); // back on the background_thread

This patch fixes this by adding an extra release+acquire pair to dispatch_sync() and similar APIs. Added a testcase.
