I can't immediately think of a problem, though it probably requires some testing across hardware platforms.
Historically, I think the problem with pthread_getattr_np has been that it isn't correctly implemented for single-threaded apps. Hence we can't consistently rely on it. If you search for pthread_getattr_np in the gmane archives you get a fair amount of ancient history.
