That's basically what the pthreads routines in Wine are for, they
provide wrappers so that pthreads calls in linux shared libraries
do the right thing. We'll probably need a somewhat different
implementation for the NPTL version but the idea is the same.  Not
every pthreads function is implemented at the moment but it wouldn't
be a big deal to add the missing ones.
