For the scheduler the sharing of pid/tid space is not an issue.

Semantically all [1] scheduler syscalls take a tid. There isn't a single
syscall that iterates the thread group.

Even sys_setpriority() interprets its @who argument as a tid when
@which == PRIO_PROCESS (PRIO_PGRP looks to be the actual process).

[1] as seen from: git grep SYSCALL kernel/sched/
