Well, the pthreadpool thingy not used right now. Feel free
to remove it, it's just a prototype API that wraps blocking
calls into tevent based async calls. The current prototype
implementation uses pthreads, but due to the performance
problems Samba has with the Linux pthreads implementation,
to put this to real use a clone-based implementation will
have to follow as well.
