Wow! This is exactly what we were looking for. A volunteer that would
implement the Win32 threading routines. We have only implemented them
This lives in the `mono' module (the runtime engine), in the
`mono/mono/metadata' directory. Start by copying the threads-dummy.c
into threads-win32.c and you can go from there (you can look at
threads-pthread.c for reference).
