This should save clients the time/memory overhead of spawning a thread when ThreadCount/std::thread::hardware_concurrency() = 1. IMO this is also a de facto simplification of the ThreadPool API, because clients no longer have to maintain slightly separate code paths for the ThreadCount = 1 / ThreadCount > 1 cases.

Tested by running unittests/Support/SupportTests configured with -DLLVM_ENABLE_THREADS={On,Off}.
