The be able to use Thread::current() we have to manually insert logic to include the correct thread_<os>.inline.hpp file. Like:
#include "runtime/thread.hpp"
#ifdef TARGET_OS_FAMILY_linux
# include "thread_linux.inline.hpp"
#ifdef TARGET_OS_FAMILY_solaris
# include "thread_solaris.inline.hpp"
#ifdef TARGET_OS_FAMILY_windows
# include "thread_windows.inline.hpp"
# include "thread_bsd.inline.hpp"

I propose that we fold these into a new file called thread.inline.hpp, and always include that file instead.
