I looked at _Py_atomic_address to avoid atomic "serialno++", but we don't have atomic_fetch_add(). We could implement it using a loop and atomic_compare_exchange_strong()... but we don't have atomic_compare_exchange_strong() neither.

I tried to add a mutex, but there are some pratical issues:

* bpo-35388: question about calling Py_Initialize() / Py_Finalize() multiple times
* I modified _PyRuntimeState_Init() to initialize the lock.

_PyRuntimeState_Init() calls PyThread_acquire_lock() which calls PyMem_RawMalloc(). Problem: PyMem_RawMalloc() requires the lock. I worked around the isuse using "if (_PyRuntime.mem.mutex != NULL) {".
