Summary of changes

This PR is an approach to #1412 that adds a test to induce this race condition. The test relies on implementation details, but that is made explicit in the text of the test, I have done it this way because there isn't another great way to deterministically induce the problem.

cc: @JonKohler

Closes #1256

This mocks out the isdir call so that the directory is created
immediately after you determine whether or not it exists, thus
simulating a race condition between two threads or processes
creating the same directory.
This fixes a race condition in _bypass_ensure_directory where
two threads or processes may erroneously fail because they are
both creating the same directory. A more robust implementation
of this may involve exposing the un-wrapped os.makedirs.

Originally reported with proposed patch by @JonKohler in
github PR pypa#1412. This patch came out of discussions on that

Yes this should replace your original PR since it solves the same problem in a different way. I've seen no objections since I opened this PR so I'm going to merge it.
