Can you remind me of the conversation? Pthread stubs are just stubs, I'm
confused why it's a bad idea to add stubbed symbols which are actually required
to build. If you need the functionality, and it's not provided by libc, I don't
see how not having a stubbed function will save you.

I'm fine with revert as long as things still build. I'd like to understand
things a bit better first.
