That would be awesome! Do you use the static stdlib configuration?

I had to make assumptions about the type of pthread_key_t. If the type is wrong, there’s a nice static_assert with a message telling how to fix it. This came up yesterday for Android builds, and fixes are pretty straight forward: https://github.com/apple/swift/pull/9930/files

While our Linux bots have been happy with the changes, I’m not familiar with the build configurations involving the build-your-own-ICU path, nor with FreeBSD, Cygwin, Android, etc. I would like to make sure that all supported configurations still work, can someone help me with this?
