gettid returns the thread ID of the current process. This is equal
to the process ID (as returned by
unless the process is part of a thread group (created by specifying
the CLONE_THREAD flag to the
system call). All processes in the same thread group

This call is always successful.
gettid is Linux specific and should not be used in programs that
are intended to be portable.
