We actually used the real thread numbers once, but it's just too hard to
read them when looking at the logs. I'd prefer if we extend the thread
startup log in processor.c by:

> "started worker thread, ID %u, pthread_id %u:"

But adding a strongswan.conf option to switch to the real IDs in every
log statement is fine for me, too.
