I am not very familiar with C++. C++11 has to define a threaded memory model, 
but I don't know if it specifies exception handling to a sufficient extent. 
Earlier C++ standards probably do not define threads even. POSIX does not cover 
C++ at all.

As far as I understand, GNU/libc specifies that cancellation is an exception 
and everything works on the condition that any caught exception is rethrown.

On other targets, I don't know how it fares.
