FreeBSD 5.0 has the ability for userland processes to create multiple
kernel threads.  It does not yet have a POSIX interface to those
threads, so don't go asking people for kernel threads support just yet :)

5.0 has a lot of new features, but some of them are not complete
(kernel threads), or not very well tested (sparc64/ia64 ports, MAC,
ufs2).  The hope is that lots of people will install 5.0 and report
problems so that 5.2 can be marked -STABLE.
