I am looking into porting NPTL to MIPS.  Just curious if
anybody has tried this before.

I notice there was a discussion about the ABI extension
for TLS (thread local storage) support.  Before that support
becomes a reality it seems one can still use NPTL with 
the help of additional system calls.

A rough search of latest glibc source shows there is
zero MIPS code for nptl.  A couple of other arches
are missing as well (such as ARM)
