I think there's not much speaking against adding _np functions if their
declaration is guarded by !_POSIX_SOURCE or _GNU_SOURCE.

Just picking up this mail from this torn apart thread, to reply:

The more I think about newlib's pthread.h, the more I think it should be removed from newlib rsp. moved into newlib's rtems/ directory, because I believe nobody but RTEMS uses it[1][2].


[1] Grepping the source tree tells, the cris port also seems to use it, but I am inclined to believe this to be a bug, because I am having difficulties to imagine what a bare-metal target would need pthread.h for.

[2] IIRC, bootstrapping GCC also requires for targets which actually support pthreads. For newlib, to my knowledge this would be cygwin and RTEMS, only.
