Doesn't help from the point of view of seeing which threads in GDB
match which debug output statements. On Linux this is easy as
pthread_t is a uint printed by gdb.
How about getting gdb to print the pthread_t pointer address instead?
I don't care what the number is, so long as I can compare the thread
listing in gdb to the debug output and it makes sense!
