I think the naming and the description is a bit misleading. The atexit()
support is not thread specific. Operations are serialized with the
__atexit_lock lock. In case _REENT_GLOBAL_ATEXIT is undefined, then the
data structures for the atexit() support are part of struct _reent, but only
used in _GLOBAL_REENT. Thus the space in the thread specific structures is
wasted. See also
I named it to mean that atexit isn't in _reent. But _reent isn't a
good name as option as it is implementation specific data structure
How about --enable-global-atexit-data, and changes the description accordingly?
Yes, I think this name describes it better.
