Sorry, no idea about the gnulib wrapper.

I created a patch with a possible implementation using pthread_key_create.
The only caveat I see is that the context of the main thread is not freed when gnutls_global_deinit then_gnutls_rnd_deinit is called because the linked list is removed [0001-pthread_key_create-to-store-context.patch](/uploads/e64417525be2f2cc9fc8080ef917e582/0001-pthread_key_create-to-store-context.patch).

However this is just one context and I guess most of the applications will exit after deinitializing the library anyway.

Best Regards, Pedro
