            Bug ID: 32377
           Summary: __STDC_NO_THREADS__ undefined with glibc
           Product: clang
           Version: 3.9
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: Driver

glibc doesn't support the C11 threads API but clang doesn't define
__STDC_NO_THREADS__, even in C11 mode, as is required by the C11 spec (ยง

I know this is partially a libc issue, since it's really up to the standard
library (not the compiler) to support the API.  glibc does contain a `#define
__STDC_NO_THREADS__ 1` (as of 2.16) in stdc-predef.h, but clang doesn't
automatically include that file (GCC does).

I'm working around this issue right now by including stdc-predef.h (indirectly,
for portability reasons; limits.h -> features.h -> stdc-predef.h), but AFAIK
this shouldn't be necessary for a conformant implementation of C11.  I should
be able to have something like

  #if defined(__STDC_VERSION__) && \
      (__STDC_VERSION__ >= 201102L) && \
  #  include <threads.h>

as the first few lines in my code, and have it work as expected.

It seems like the most straightforward solution would be to include
<stdc-predef.h> on glibc just like GCC does
