Thanks for the feedback everyone, this is exactly what I needed to know.

Regarding the C++ stack unwinding on thread cancellation, my guess is 
that since you've brought over the glibc code unchanged, and since 
no-one has said "oh we had to disable all of that to make it work 
here", there's a good chance that it will just work.  I'll let you know 
how I get on.

Cheers,  Phil.
