Hi Volker,

I see Vladimir is already pushing this. It looks okay to me too.

Aside: I was surprised to see this:

  889 bool os::create_thread(Thread* thread, ThreadType thr_type, size_t 
stack_size) {
  891   // We want the whole function to be synchronized.
  892   ThreadCritical cs;

Why do you need to serialize thread creation?
