Hmm... Again start point.

But now pthreads codes are in os2thread.c, so pthread lib is
unnecessary. And we can use all the codes of pthread.c without modifying
it at all. If possible, I would like to use '#include "pthread.c"' using
some guard macros. This reduces the maintenance burden you are saying.

BTW who is 'everybody' being going to take the maintenance burden ? Will
you do it ? I think they will be OS/2 people like me. At least, I
willing to take the burden if needed.

Finally, I think, pthread.c is sufficient for the reference codes and
the fall back codes. The more opportunity of the choice is better.
