The bsd-uthread target supports an old thread library ("libc_r") that
was last included in FreeBSD release 6.4 released in 2008.  However,
this library has not been used as the default library since FreeBSD
5.0 (2003) and 4.11 (2005).  Thread support for modern FreeBSD binaries
is provided via "normal" LWP support in core files and the native
FreeBSD target.

gdb/ChangeLog:

	* amd64-fbsd-tdep.c: Remove "bsd-uthread.h" include.
	(amd64fbsd_jmp_buf_reg_offset): Remove.
	(amd64fbsd_supply_uthread): Remove function.
	(amd64fbsd_collect_uthread): Remove function.
	(amd64fbsd_init_abi): Don't set bsd-uthread callbacks.
	* configure.tgt (i[34567]86-*-freebsd*): Remove bsd-uthread.o.
	(x86_64-*-freebsd*): Remove bsd-uthread.o.
	(fbsd-nat.c): Update comment.
	* i386-fbsd-tdep.c: Remove "bsd-uthread.h" include.
	(i386fbsd_jmp_buf_reg_offset): Remove.
	(i386fbsd_supply_uthread): Remove function.
	(i386fbsd_collect_uthread): Remove function.
	(i386fbsd_init_abi): Don't set bsd-uthread callbacks.

Thanks again!

By any chance, would you know the same information but for obsd and 
nbsd?  If not I'll inquire on the relevant mailing lists.

The nbsd architectures in GDB don't use bsd-uthread, only obsd.

Looking at cvsweb for OpenBSD, it seems that OpenBSD switched the default
threading library from a uthread-style libc_r to a LWP-based librthreads
for its thread support in 2012:

http://marc.info/?l=openbsd-cvs&m=132928856921225&w=2

This seems to have been released in OpenBSD 5.1?  I believe that the older
uthread-library last shipped in OpenBSD 5.0 in 2011.  Presumably Mark (cc'd)
can confirm?
