I don't know if there was a historical reason for libpthread to have a
system wrapper, but there is certainly none in the current code.  This
change makes it compat-only.

Tested x86_64-linux-gnu.


	* nptl/pt-system.c: Rewritten.  Put everything under
	[SHLIB_COMPAT (libpthread, GLIBC_2_0, GLIBC_2_22)].
	Use IFUNC to redirect when possible.
