My naive approach would be to download the source files for the kernel.

Then I would use the find command to run through the source directories looking for all -name "*.h" files, and use the -exec grep PTHREAD_THREAD_MAX '{}'  \; option to search through each file found for the desired string.

if it ain't in an include file with a .h extension, try -name "*.c", or just manually cd to each directory and grep for the string at the command line.
