Some thread libraries are implemented at kernel level and some are at user level. Posix Threads (pthreads) were designed to be portable. I am sure other were as well. But, I not 100% sure.

Here is a link that is titled "Implementing a Thread Library on Linux".  It also provides some examples and other links with additional information.

I hope this helps,
