function terminates the calling thread and makes the value
available to any successful join with the terminating thread.
Any cancellation cleanup handlers
that have been pushed and not yet popped are popped in the reverse order
that they were pushed and then executed.
After all cancellation cleanup handlers have been executed,
if the thread has any thread-specific data,
appropriate destructor functions will be called in an unspecified order.
Thread termination does not release any application visible process resources,
including, but not limited to, mutexes and file descriptors,
nor does it perform any process level cleanup actions,
including, but not limited to, calling any
routines that may exist.

The function's return value serves as the thread's exit status.
