(at least I remember seeing all calls to ptid_build there
passing 0 for lwp).
Could be missing something of course.

The language in the comment in ptid.h waffles a bit:
process_stratum targets that handle threading themselves should
prefer using the ptid.lwp field, leaving the ptid.tid field for any
thread_stratum target that might want to sit on top.
Can we make this more of a rule than just a "should prefer"?
[and fix targets to follow]
