On a quick glance, it looks ok.  I do notice, however, that you've
maintained both USE_THREADS and USE_ITHREADS.  This does allow for the
future possibility of supporting yet-another-threads implementation, but
I'd perhaps have been tempted to even simplify things further and simply
#define USE_ITHREADS USE_THREADS for compatibility with pre-5.9.0.

On the other hand, what you have doesn't appear broken, so maybe we
shouldn't touch it further :-).
