Hi David,

the change looks good.
Thanks for fixing our platforms as well.

> 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.
> Thanks,
> David
