Re: [PATCH] thread cancellation via C++ exception



This is not only not going to be added to glibc, it's also not
guaranteed to work (probably doesn't work today) and can break in
interesting ways at any time.

Cancellation, as the word already suggests, is final.  There mustn't be
any catch without rethrow.  The thread library does, and will probably
even more so in future, alter the state of the library once a thread is
canceled and this is not reversible.
