You need the current (2003-07-21T20:45:00-0700) glibc to compile this
code.  The changes include:

~ implement pthread_attr_[sg]etaffinity_np.  On a NUMA machine you don't
  want to start a thread on a processor other then the target processor.
  This functionality needs a very recent (couple of days old) 2.5 kernel
  with CLONE_STOPPED suport.

~ finish implementation of scheduler thread attributes.  You can now
  select RT schedulers etc but the wakeup completely depends on the
  futex code which doesn't handle priorities right.  All the remaining
  changes are on the kernel side.  This also needs CLONE_STOPPED

~ fix PPC pthread_once() (Steve Monroe)

~ minor build process improvements.


I haven't tested the gdb handling since CLONE_STOPPED is used.  Maybe it
needs some tweaking.
