I haven't looked up the semantic of exit_group, but exit() must
terminate the whole program.  If we want to fully support POSIX
signal sematic, we have introduce another exit mechanism to cancel
a part of a thread group.

Concerning the cleanup of code, waitpid (or waittid) seems to be
enough for my reading of the SUS. It should not be a problem to
defer the resource freeing until pthread_detach or pthread_join
is called. If I read the requirements correctly, one or the other
has to be called by the program anyway.
