WL#8190: Refactor low-level thread handling
Status: Complete — Priority: Medium
There are several issues with the low-level code for handling OS threads: - Separate APIs for Windows and Non-windows platforms (thread create & join) - Windows APIs are not fully tracked by performance schema (thread create) - Dummy functions are defined for pthread features not supported by Windows. This makes it falsely appear as if these functions have effect on Windows. - Heavy use of macros where inline functions or typedefs would be better. This WL aims at refactoring the low-level thread handling code to correct these issues. This WL is similar to: - WL#7607 Refactor atomics implementation - WL#7914 Remove custom rwlock windows implementation
