That one is funny. It was/is a longstanding libc bug originally reported
by Dong Liu. I actually thought it'd be fixed but now thanks to your
report I see it's still broken. So the multithreaded variant of your
double.c doesn't work at all on our libc.
The bug is in glibc/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/mips/clone.S; I suppose
Cobalt's libc which I last worked on late October is still using my
old clone.S from that time or somebody else there came up with a funky
new bug completly on it's own - which might explain why double.c cannot
even successfully create the threads.
More later ...
