Hi Petter,

At first, I though about using WARN_PRIdPTR (used to print WARN argument), but since pthread_t is most likely a pointer or a some opaque integer, printing it as hex would be more readable, and %p had been used for pointers for quite long time, so I chose the latter.

The disadvantage is that %p is printed in platform-dependent way (e.g., some runtimes adds 0x prefix others not) but for debugging and logging purposes it's ok.

> Thanks for the note, it's good you found it useful.  Minor comment:  I see you don't want to rely on the C99 header, but I don't think casting to (void *) is quite portable either, since in principle the thread ID may be an integer wider than a pointer, though I practice it is unlikely.
