I don't think that's what we want to do. We have a patch on libglib2
that normally allows libglib2 to build and work without thread support,
However, when libglib2 was bumped by Spenser Gilliland to 2.36.x, this
patch was not completely properly updated it seems. Maybe this is
something that Samuel Martin could have a look at, since he was the one
who did the original patch?

Unless of course we decide that we don't care about supporting libglib2
without threads, but in this case, the addition "depends
on !BR2_TOOLCHAIN_HAS_THREADS" has to be propagated to *all* reverse
dependencies of libglib2 (quite a significant number of packages).
