The privately discussed plan for 9.0 is to have libthr merged into
libc, and have libpthread and libthr as only filter object against libc
providing pthread_* and related symbols.

This would eliminate the need for pthread stubs and solve the issues
with (wrongly built) binaries that do not link to libthr but dlopen()
libraries that are linked with it.
