The only reason I haven't deleted linuxthreads from the trunk of the 
EGLIBC repository is that Aurelien reported that it is still useful *for 
configurations with TLS but not NPTL, such as GNU/kFreeBSD* 
<http://www.eglibc.org/archives/patches/msg00602.html>.  Configurations 
without TLS do not work at all now; configurations supporting NPTL should 
use NPTL.
