Something like this in pthreadP.h ?

+#ifdef __NR_rseq
+#include <sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/rseq-internal.h>
+#include <sysdeps/nptl/rseq-internal.h>
+#endif  /* __NR_rseq.  */

where sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/rseq-internal.h contains the linux
implementation of rseq_register_current_thread () and
rseq_unregister_current_thread (), and sysdeps/nptl/rseq-internal.h
contains stubs.

Am I on the right track ?
