The major problem with threads on Linux is that linuxthreads always
uses 2M stack. (A MySQL thread doesn't need more than 64K stack).
The fix would be to add the standard posix function call:
to glibc and this wouldn't be a problem anymore.
Not that in Linux 2.3 they have changed some aspects on threading to
be able to easily run +2000 threads.
