Haya!  This is much more than I said...

 1 - I'm not convinced currently that adding threads immediately to the list in
     all-stop mode in linux_handle_extended_wait is a good idea.  See here for
     thoughts around that:

      http://sourceware.org/ml/gdb/2009-05/msg00067.html

 2 - If the target has let the thread escape this far without having added it to
     the list, *and* the target needs to book-keep extra thread info associated
     with the thread structure, than your patch looks like paparing over a bug.
     It's just a simple to handle it in the target's target_wait implementation,
     just before returning an event.

 3 - I really just meant to just remove this whole block:

-  if (ecs->new_thread_event)
-    {
-      if (non_stop)
-	/* Non-stop assumes that the target handles adding new threads
-	   to the thread list.  */
-	internal_error (__FILE__, __LINE__, "\
-targets should add new threads to the thread list themselves in non-stop mode.");
-
-      /* We may want to consider not doing a resume here in order to
-	 give the user a chance to play with the new thread.  It might
-	 be good to make that a user-settable option.  */
-
-      /* At this point, all threads are stopped (happens automatically
-	 in either the OS or the native code).  Therefore we need to
-	 continue all threads in order to make progress.  */
-
-      if (!ptid_equal (ecs->ptid, inferior_ptid))
-	context_switch (ecs->ptid);
-      target_resume (RESUME_ALL, 0, TARGET_SIGNAL_0);
-      prepare_to_wait (ecs);
-      return;
-    }
