Qemu doesn't currently have any real thread support. It has a few hacks that 
work for simple linuxthreads cases, but I doubt real multithreaded 
applications will work.

My point was that instead of blindly passing the threading syscalls through to 
the host we should consider using the host libc/libpthread thread support.
