Description

[compiler-rt] Add a critical section when flushing gcov counters

Summary:
Counters can be flushed in a multi-threaded context for example when the process is forked in different threads (https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/blob/master/llvm/lib/Transforms/Instrumentation/GCOVProfiling.cpp#L632-L663).
In order to avoid pretty bad things, a critical section is needed around the flush.
We had a lot of crashes in this code in Firefox CI when we switched to clang for linux ccov builds and those crashes disappeared with this patch.
