For those interested:
I have run the tests with the options above on my FreeBSD 8 system
(yes, I know, that's unsupported now ;-).
time ./AMD64_FREEBSD/threadtest -iters 100000 -n 20 -tests ALL 2>&1 | egrep -v "appears starved or deadlocked" | tee threadtest.log
It ran several hours during the night; system load was nearly 20.
top -H showed all the threads. The log does not show any runtime error
I also tried this on my Mac with OS/X 10.9.5, but I had to kill it
after an hour because it used up all the resources and I had to work.
Less aggressive tests didn't show any failure there, too.
So I guess the pthreads runtime has indeed improved.
