Digging up a little more the scenario is:
uclibc-ng -> nptl (old threads broken, none possibly as well)
uclibc -> no nptl, only old or none.

So basically apply the patch i say, it's not an option we had shipping
and uclibc-ng git reverts (and re-reverts!) this so we should wait for a
new release to know what's up and let them make up their mind.
