Breaking libpthread is different than breaking libc as there is the libc_r
fallback. We've hashed this out in the ancient past before and decided that
we would require a custom kernel for 80386 for 5.x but not a custom userland.
For 6.0 we are (finally!) going to just drop 80386 altogether. I've been
wanting to do this personally since early SMPng days, but we came to an
agreement back then and since we've already gone and branched RELENG_5 and
frozen the ABI I think we should stick to the previously agreed-upon plan.
