Bug#675606: LinuxThreads version bump

Package: libc0.1
Version: 2.13-32
Tags: patch

Currently, perl relies on getconf to figure out whether threads have their
own PID or not. They assume that this is true for linuxthreads but not for


NPTL 2.11.3

Since this behaviour was changed in patched versions of linuxthreads, I think
it'd be useful if they exposed a different version number so that users like
perl can check for it.

Patch attached.
