I have a working kaffe 0.10 with support for POSIX threads in Linux,
this will posted in a short time (I hope).

This implementation currently supports only linux/x86 but because of

  1) GC support : It uses the /proc filesystem to access thread
     stack information. (This will work in all Linux platforms)

  2) Spinlock support: There is a small amount of code that is
     specific to the x86 architecture. This replicates the
     work of the threading library. (This is expected to work in
     all x86 platforms)

Right now I'm very busy too, so, I'll do the posts when I have
more time.

Keep on hacking!
