Parent article: Empty symlinks and full POSIX compliance

There are much more significant ones if anyone cared about POSIX and Linux eg some of the problems caused by the fact that Linux has a different process thread model and does not provide means to paper over this.

Most of those problems vanished when LinuxThreads was supplanted by NPTL, thank goodness. The largest remaining ones consist of problems caused by glibc's insistence on synthesising its own TID rather than just handing up the kernel's, causing trouble talking to kernel interfaces that expect the real TID.
