That was exactly the one I was looking for, it is where Linus
goes on to describe pthreads as being:
The pthreads approach never got to a real framework for threads as
real entities. To pthreads, a thread is a braindamaged stepchild of a
process, and cannot do anything on its own. It's this drooling messy
that has no life without the parent process that wipes up after it.
It has no spine.
