I wonder if all of the threads in a process might be pointing to the same struct rusage?
Nope, checking kern/kern_resource.c kern_getrusage(), there is a per-proc struct rusage_ext which gets the sum of the per-thread td->td_ru counters via rufetch() / ruxagg()...so you're right that the counters are now per-thread.
