Hi Austin,
I use only NPTL; my reply was simply based on what I remember and I've understood
from the mailing list, that is TLS should be working with linuxthreads too
(not sure, this has been mainly done by Peter Mazinger in the past).
Anyway I don't know the current status, I never took care of it, and I don't know
what will happen in the future with linuxthreads.
I'd keep the code unchanged.
