[committed] libstdc++: Disable gthreads weak symbols for glibc 2.34 [PR103133]

Tested powerpc64le-linux, glibc 2.17 and 2.34, pushed to trunk.

We also want something like this for musl-based targets. And Florian has
suggested we should also disable the weak symbols for libstdc++.a, but
those need more work.


Since Glibc 2.34 all pthreads symbols are defined directly in libc not
libpthread, and since Glibc 2.32 we have used __libc_single_threaded to
avoid unnecessary locking in single-threaded programs. This means there
is no reason to avoid linking to libpthread now, and so no reason to use
weak symbols defined in gthr-posix.h for all the pthread_xxx functions.


	PR libstdc++/100748
	PR libstdc++/103133
	* config/os/gnu-linux/os_defines.h (_GLIBCXX_GTHREAD_USE_WEAK):
	Define for glibc 2.34 and later.
