I believe that 4 threads by worker should be sufficient but I need to do some
benchmarks. For the second question, the wake up will be done by injecting a
"fake" Nginx event into the queue, that's my main problem and that's why I've
used the word "hacking" in the title of this subject.

I will modify Nginx to ensure it will use the same mutex as my threads when
accessing the event queue. In fact it's already in Nginx's code
(ngx_posted_event_mutex) but only active when compiling with the NGX_THREADS

My project is a very specific module, so I will do any modification required in
Nginx's code.
