The current release of gcc doesn't contain threadsafe profiling, and indeed may never do. The cfg branch, where this work is being carried out reports that merging threadsafe profiling with main is problematic, and the code may be dropped.

Still, there a whole bunch of single thread programs that can benifit from this stuff, especially on architectures like x86 which have tiny numbers of registers.
