To support the old LinuxThreads implementation we had to distinguish
between threading libraries with fixed-stack-size threads
(LinuxThreads), and variable-stack-sized-threads (NPTL). As LinuxThreads
support was removed years ago and all the code related to it has now
been removed, we have a situation where supports_variable_stack_size()
is always true and so the function and its use can be removed.
While this notion was only ever relevant to Linux it also got copied
across to the BSD and AIX ports.
