This kind of code is no problem for a 1-on-1 implementation.

Read it as: no problems with LinuxThreads or NPTL on UP or SMP machines.
 Unless the kernel is broken only M-on-N implementations can have
problems with this.  It's just one of the many many corner cases one has
to think about and more importantly work around.  1-on-1 makes life so
much easier.
