            Bug ID: 20749
           Summary: libc++ assumes too much about pthread_t
           Product: libc++
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW

libc++ assumes that `pthread_t` is either `void*` or `long`, but a conformant
implementation can choose to use a struct instead. This is useful, for
instance, to add a reuse counter so as to reduce collisions on reused ids.

Unfortunately, the only thing one can do with `pthread_t` is to compare two
*valid* ids via `pthread_equal`, so for implementations where it is a struct,
it is not suitable to implement `std::thread::id`.
