OK all points taken.
The pthread-library is used to manage the pointers to the base of the
threadvar block. (Same of course does use the GS: stuff on Linux-X86/32
to manage it's own thread specific storage.)
Besides the performance argument, the original argument that triggered
the discussion was that somebody suggested that it would be a good idea
to get rid of the libc (and thus pthreadlib) dependency.
