cleanup push and pop are also no-ops if pthread_exit is not reachable.
this can make a big difference for library code which needs to protect
itself against cancellation, but which is unlikely to actually be used
in programs with threads/cancellation.
previously, pthread_cleanup_push/pop were pulling in all of
pthread_create due to dependency on the __pthread_unwind_next
function. this was not needed, as cancellation cleanup handlers can
never be called unless pthread_exit or pthread_cancel is reachable.
this seems to be necessary to make the linker accept the functions in
a shared library (perhaps to generate PLT entries?)
strictly speaking libc-internal asm should not need it. i might clean
that up later.
these are useless and have caused problems for users trying to build
with non-gnu tools like tcc's assembler.
glibc made the ridiculous choice to use pass-by-register calling
convention for these functions, which is impossible to duplicate
directly on non-gcc compilers. instead, we use ugly asm to wrap and
convert the calling convention. presumably this works with every
compiler anyone could potentially want to use.
