You shouldn't be trying to access a per-thread pool.  It isn't
necessary.  The pool in the request-rec, is by definition, only available
within that request, which is limited to a single thread.  The only reason
to access a per-thread pool, is if you want to allocate memory that has
the same lifetime as the thread itself.  There is currently no way to do
that, but there also hasn't been a convincing reason to do it.
