Do we plan to get rid of LinuxThreads support anytime soon?

Hi all,

How long do we plan to continue support for LinuxThreads (vs NPTL) Linux
variants? There would be some coding in os/linux which could be thrown away
if we stopped supporting LinuxThreads.

If we do not get rid of it: does Oracle still run tests on Linux variants
which use LinuxThreads?


Regards, Thomas
