The support for C++11 threads in libstdc++ on mingw isn't so much about 
the version of libstdc++ (or GCC), but it depends on which way libstdc++ 
was built. libstdc++ only supports C++11 thread primitives on mingw if 
built with winpthreads enabled. (This is the default in e.g. MSYS2, but 
not the default in e.g. debian provided cross compilers.)

(With libc++ in llvm-mingw, C++11 threads are always supported and doesn't 
rely on the external winpthreads library.)
