It depends entirely on which MPM is configured. Many apache installs
default to prefork, which would not be vulnerable, but others default to
worker, which would be. Of course even worker uses multiple
subprocesses in addition to multiple threads, so it's quite possible
that you could luck out and have the two threads of control that are
doing the commit run in different processes and thus avoid the problem
by chance.
