[FWTools] Thread safety of GDAL - recent information?

I wonder if there is any up-to-date information 
about how thread-safe GDAL is.  

I have found the http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/FAQMiscellaneous 
page, where there is a short paragraph. But the text 
seems a bit old, since it refers only to GDAL 1.3.0.
I hoped there might be more information somewhere.  

For example, the FAQ text says: 

    "Also, while the GDAL core infrastructure is now 
     thread-safe for this specific case, only a few 
     drivers have been vetted to be thread safe."

So, is there a list of the thread-safe drivers? 

Or a blacklist of drivers with known threading problems?

Best regards,

Mikael Rittri
