If late interposition is no longer a supported use-case, does that apply to the pthread use case as well?

I would be quite keen to remove the lazy thread-initialisation check from every function prologue.

Indeed, it looks like all that complexity is no longer needed.
@pcc to confirm that there are no hidden dependencies.

It should be fine to remove the late-init instrumentation and reinstate the pthread_create interceptor.
