We have quite a bit of global state the runtime that effectively breaks the isolation between interpreters.  Some of it exists as "global" C variables (see #36876) and the rest as fields on _PyRuntimeState.  The offending state should be moved to PyInterpreterState.

See Include/internal/pycore_pystate.h for the _PyRuntimeState and PyInterpreterState structs.

FYI, I've already started some of this work:

* #36737 warnings
* #36854 gc
* #33608 pending calls
* #10915 & #15751 gilstate

Other bits I'm planning on:
* the rest of the global "ceval" state
* the memory allocators
* the GIL

Note that, to make the GIL per-interpreter, we can't have any remaining runtime state shared by interpreters (unless it is protected by its own locks).

In conjunction with #36876, there are a bunch of currently ignored globals (in Tools/c-globals/ignored-globals.txt) that should actually be moved to per-interpreter runtime state.  This mostly applies to any globals that point to one or more objects, since objects must not be shared by interpreters.
