While reading the patch I noticed that you #defined _POSIX_THREADS to -1
in it.  I thought we have a posix thread implementation provided by
libpthread, so I am a bit confused.  Is this about something else?

I won't define it until we have a real libpthread implementation that
interacts correctly with libc and has all the right hairy semantics.
An extra libpthread that is not integrated with libc will never be a true
POSIX implementation.

This is going to be a dumb question, but what would that take?
