Re: [RFC] Add C11 threads.h support.

My apologies for being off this long. I have finally made this work,
and I'm not getting errors with conform or linknamespace tests but I
had to exports some symbols like this.

diff --git a/misc/Versions b/misc/Versions
index 534d1a3..df2ffc8 100644

I don't know if I'm actually allowed to do that, but I think it makes sense.

I think the whole patch set is ready for C11 threads.h (Including
manual and tests), but I don't expect it to make it for version 2.22
since it's frozen. Should I just send my patches here for a deep
