> 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.
