Cannot you? From reading the posix thread documentation I have an
impression that you can.
See for instance

thread may be reclaimed.
Moreover, there is also a thread return status PTHREAD_CANCELED that is
returned by pthread_join when the thread exits due to pthread_cancel
request. See the paragraph "Thread Cancellation Cleanup Handlers" at
