Well the Hurd libpthread does not have any limit in the number of keys,
so it's like PATH_MAX: defining it globally can possibly break some
applications using the value blindly. Defining it to INT_MAX in the
ThreadIdentifierDataPthreads.cpp file itself is however not a problem
since one can check in the code below whether that case works.
