gettid is not a syscall which fails.  From the gettid(2):

--------------
RETURN VALUE
       On success, returns the thread ID of the current process.

ERRORS
       This call is always successful.
--------------

Similarly, the code is written to rely on the documented behavior.  So,
when it's not available, maybe the wrapper should return
(pid_t)pthread_self() instead of -ENOSYS?
