What's the thread model on Linux?

By default, Kaffe always uses the "jthread" threading package (look
for 'with_threads' in configure.in and config/*/*/config.frag). It
can be compiled to use kernel threads on Linux
(--with-threads=unix-pthreads). To see what version was compiled in
to a particular executable, use the -fullversion argument to kaffe.
(Hmm, config/i386/linux/config.frag references 'linux-threads' when it
should reference 'unix-pthreads' I think.)
