The below memory leak issue was found with Valgrind:

The variable "invocation" is allocated in createThreadInterna, and passed to "pthread_create".
I think the "pthread_create" doesn't manage the "void *arg" argument, so some routine is needed to free that pointer.

ThreadIdentifier createThreadInternal(ThreadFunction entryPoint, void* data, const char*) {
    OwnPtr<ThreadFunctionInvocation> invocation = adoptPtr(new ThreadFunctionInvocation(entryPoint, data));
    pthread_t threadHandle;
    if (pthread_create(&threadHandle, 0, wtfThreadEntryPoint, invocation.get()))
        return 0;
    ThreadFunctionInvocation* leakedInvocation = invocation.leakPtr();
