It's generic code.  At least glibc keeps generic code around, if I
recall correctly.  Further, one of the very nice things about this
libpthread is that it is really easy to integrate into a new OS (or
even use in a kernel).  It would be a shame to lose that feature.
But, as I'm not doing the work, you are welcome to evict this code to
make your life easier.
