Right, the pthread package (GNU Pth) is fine. This is about importing
NetBSD's pthread implementation and providing it via user-space
servers (possibly with some kernel support if absolutely necessary).
This would indeed be the equivalent of a "kernel-space" pthread
implementation for MINIX. This would not replace GNU Pth, but would
hopefully serve as a better threading implementation.
