> Wouldn't it be better to expose and re-use the HEAD_LOCK and HEAD_UNLOCK macros from pystate.c?

The macro-names HEAD_LOCK/HEAD_UNLOCK irritates me a bit. Protecting only the head would not be enough. Any tstate object could be invalidated. But actually, it protects any modification on the list (both in tstate_delete_common and in new_threadstate), as far as I see it.

But yes, it would be a good thing to export this locking functionality so other code can use it.
