> There is still a lot of AIX 6.1 out there, and iirc, there may be "extended" support available.

This issue is about AIX5 support. I'm fine with providing best effort support for AIX 6.1. If supporting AIX 6 becomes too expensive, we can consider to drop support for this version.

Anyway, I close this issue: I don't think that it's worth it to attempt to support AIX 5 in Python 3.10: AIX 5 is no longer supported by its vendor (IBM). Use Python 3.9 which seems to better support AIX 5 (don't need thread_cputime()).
