You'll need to clarify. ptid_t is a struct of three values,
it is not "just some number like 0 or 1".

ptid_t is the type gdb uses internally to identify both processes and threads.
Its API is defined in gdb/common/ptid.[ch].

There is ptid_match() which could be given a process ptid for the filter,
and then you just need to iterate over all_threads, e.g. with
for_each_inferior_with_data, for threads that match (IOW for threads
that have the same process id).
