New Revision: 224711

  MFC r224047:
    Remove note that claims pthread_set_name_np is for debugging only.
    As Garrett points out,
      It is no more a debugging interface than setproctitle(3), and has not
      been since the name started getting stuffed into the kernel. This
      statement may have made sense when the name was only visible in thread
      state dumps and the debugger.
