It does quite a bit.  For instance, getpid() in the threads will no
longer return a unique value per thread, but the thread group ID.

On the other hand, I'd like to see LinuxThreads use CLONE_THREAD also. 
Ulrich, I know that it doesn't begin to cover what LinuxThreads needs
from the kernel, but in my conversations with David Howells about the
process ornament debugging interface we've agreed that it would be a
great deal easier to deal with threaded processes if they belonged to a
thread group.
