[Mono-dev] [PATCH] Changes for CreateThread calls.

The attached patch fixes some problems I was seeing with thread IDs on Winx64.

What I found was that the thread ID argument of CreateThread is a
ulong which is not 64 bits on Winx64.  So when called with the address
of a size variable the top 32 bits are garbage.  This patch simply
initializes all thread ID variables to zero before calling
CreateThread.  Is there a better way to fix this?

	* appdomain.c (mono_domain_unload),
	* attach.c (transport_start_receive),
	* threads.c (mono_thread_create_internal),
	* threads.c (ves_icall_System_Threading_Thread_Thread_internal):
	  Initialize the tid variable to 0 before calls to CreateThread.
	  This is needed for Winx64 because that argument is only 32 bits.
