This was just an example that thread id is not preserved across forks.

It's the same in NetBSD (but sometimes it can be by an accident preserved).

On a fundamental level, there are two sane models for a thread

(2) It is process local and invariant.

Agreed so far, but the question is whether "invariant" holds across fork().

After fork(2) we have a new process entity and the LWP ID is local to
new thread.

Pragmatically we should look for the easiest solution.

However... this behavior proposed by Joerg is still conformant with POSIX.

"A process shall be created with a single thread. If a multi-threaded
process calls fork(), the new process shall contain a replica of the
calling thread and its entire address space, possibly including the
states of mutexes and other resources. [...]

So, let's go with it.
