[lldb-dev] [LLVMdev] RFC: LLVM should require a working C++11 <thread>, <mutex>, and <atomic>

Also, can't we simply provide some dummy <mutex> / <thread> on mingw
systems and warn loudly about single-threaded stuff?

This was a precedent actually - when LLVM started to use atomics,
everyone w/o them ended with non-reentrant LLVM and everything was ok.
