AFAIK the pthread_* functions exported by libc.so that accept pthread_t
already handle NULL input in a somewhat consistent wat (pthread_setschedparam,
pthread_getschedparam, and pthread_equal) and it should route to libpthread
if or when the program dlopen it. It essentially a noop operations, but
I think it is the expected behaviour in such cases.
