Even if so, the special libpthread is a reasonable compromise for me.

How many users will have to switch kernels again and again
between 5.0 and older with the same old binary?

I've tested 4.0 and 4.99.72 kenrels with
4.0 and 4.99.72 libc and libpthread libraries,
and it took only ~60 seconds to replace and revert them.
