Subject: Re: Pending issues for next release


is there a schedule for C11 thread interfaces? I have a shallow
wrapping of C11 threads via pthread in P99, but because of the
different calling conventions for the user's start function (return of
int instead of void* ) this is sort of suboptimal (read crude).

Having scanned through the musl sources, I don't think that supporting
C11 threads would be a big deal. Some additional wrappers should
suffice, I think.

I have seen Rich's mail to glibc asking for the size of some data
structures, but I have the impression that this has stalled and that
there is no reply to be expected soon. I understand that musl wants to
be ABI compatible, but I don't see anything that can't be fixed
immediately, once they ship a version of C11 threads. I would expect
any sane implementation that supports pthread and C11 thread
simultaneously not to change the ABI for the native C interface just
for the fun of it.
