Linux has had support for threads for ages. Actually the quote is correct: in 2002 Red Hat developed a new threads library, called the Native POSIX Thread Library, or NTPL, and used it in their, well, ground-breaking Red Hat 9 release. Broke lots of other stuff as well. ;-)
So it does make a lot of sense that rpm was among the first projects to make use of NTPL. This was of course covered here at LWN.
