As glibc/netbsd don't protect access to thread struct members by a global
lock, we don't want to do it either. This change reduces the
responsibility of g_thread_list_lock to only protect g_thread_list.

eb847bc8666842a3cfc9c06e8458ad1abebebaf0 10-Oct-2013 Elliott Hughes <enh@google.com> Fix x86_64 build, clean up intermediate libraries.

The x86_64 build was failing because clone.S had a call to __thread_entry which
was being added to a different intermediate .a on the way to making libc.so,
and the linker couldn't guarantee statically that such a relocation would be

ld: error: out/target/product/generic_x86_64/obj/STATIC_LIBRARIES/libc_common_intermediates/libc_common.a(clone.o): requires dynamic R_X86_64_PC32 reloc against '__thread_entry' which may overflow at runtime; recompile with -fPIC

This patch addresses that by ensuring that the caller and callee end up in the
same intermediate .a. While I'm here, I've tried to clean up some of the mess
that led to this situation too. In particular, this removes libc/private/ from
the default include path (except for the DNS code), and splits out the DNS
code into its own library (since it's a weird special case of upstream NetBSD
code that's diverged so heavily it's unlikely ever to get back in sync).

There's more cleanup of the DNS situation possible, but this is definitely a
step in the right direction, and it's more than enough to get x86_64 building

fae89fc4042ee4c360842234dfda7831c313bd44 21-Feb-2013 Elliott Hughes <enh@google.com> Fix raise(3) so it works in signal handlers.

We could special-case raise(3) in non-threaded programs, but the more
conservative course is to make pthread_kill(3) work in signal handlers
at the cost of a race shared by other C libraries.

9d23e04c43dbb8480bea8be28b8a2f37423bec49 16-Feb-2013 Elliott Hughes <enh@google.com> Fix pthreads functions that should return ESRCH.

imgtec pointed out that pthread_kill(3) was broken, but most of the
other functions that ought to return ESRCH for invalid/exited threads
were equally broken.
