What data? The actual thread data (there's not much, beyond the thread id
which isn't direclty accessible) is found by calling the default c-tor on
the thread. The data passed in the functor is your responsibility.
Either you explicitly pass it everywhere that's needed, or the thread
stores it in a tss key.
