The futex syscall at erts/lib_src/pthread/ethr_event.c:92 failed
with ENOSYS.  That's not expected, and may be a kernel configuration
error or an error in the kernel headers (esp. unistd.h).

If it has been a case of the Erlang VM giving it bad parameters it
would have failed with EINVAL or EFAULT instead.

Bug your distro about it, or try Fedora instead.
