Would it not be better to use another recently introduced library
called pthreads? ;)  The arla people have a pthread'ified version of
lwp which would mean that lwp would be immediately portable to all
platforms that support libpthread without having to hack assembly
language.... having done that for NetBSD/amd64 I can tell you that
would be a real bonus.
