Summary0000350: winpthreads support
DescriptionCurrently threaded grades are unsafe if using winpthreads with mingw-w64, which is different from pthreads-win32. We build Boehm GC with -DGC_WIN32_THREADS (i.e. Win32 API) but the Mercury runtime still creates threads using the pthread API without registering them with the GC.

A (tiny) change will allow building Boehm GC with winpthreads. We'll try to get that upstream, and then we should upgrade.

Can we make the tiny change to the 14.01 branch ourselves, since we won't be upgrading the GC on that?

We can do that.

Incidentally, I think Paul was looking at upgrading the GC on the master branch. I'm not sure how far he got with that though.

Winpthreads support exists upstream and in our branch.
