Re: [PATCH] aarch64: Move remaining sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/aarch64/nptl/ files

Using sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/ARCH/ here is an acceptable intermediate
step.  There are really two separate things going on here:

1. De-add-on-ization of NPTL.
    To do just this, using sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/ARCH/ makes sense and
    is the least change from the status quo.
2. De-Linux-ization of NPTL code containing no actual Linuxisms.
    Assuming each bits/ file actually contains no Linuxisms, then
    using sysdeps/ARCH/nptl/ accomplishes one tiny piece of this work.

#1 is what requires action from every machine maintainer.  For #2 I'll be
able to proceed piecemeal with each architecture I'm actually paying
attention to for a non-Linux NPTL port, which is just ARM to begin with and
later will include x86.

So if you want to vet the bits/ files and verify there are no creeping
Linuxisms in there, then moving them to sysdeps/ARCH/nptl now is great.
But if you want to think about it less and just move them to
sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/ARCH/, that is just fine too.

I took option #2 since the tile headers were pretty similar to the existing x86.

Roland, my moving createthread.c will now mean you'll have a merge issue with your change to delete it in favor of the new #define in tls.h; sorry about that.
