I don't think this is quite correct.  If it is extern inline
(irregardless if you use inline, __inline or __inline__), it may not
be inlined, but an external reference will be generated.  Does our
libpthread contain definitions for these inline functions?

If not, we will need to add them, by replacting extern inline with a macro:

#define __PTHREAD_EXTERN_INLINE extern __inline

and including a file in the compilation of the library that does
something like:

#include <pthread.h>

Or whatever is required.

The alternative is to use the attribute always_inline, or just to use
static inline.  As the inline functions are merely wrappers, this
seems appropriate, too.  (of course, always inline only works with gcc).
