Follow on to In there, it was decided that since AIX 5 and below doesn't support thread_cputime, support for it would be dropped and the issue was closed without removing any of the dead code paths and references.

Michael Felt, David Eldelsohn: are you ok to drop support for AIX 5.3 and older?

I think that it is reasonable to drop support for AIX 5.3.
