I have no idea of the OS/400 patches and/or full sources they use are
publically available.

you're relying on a Linux wart which has been fixed in recent Linux ;)

Here's what Apache's mod_log_config does for logging the thread id:

static const char *log_pid_tid(request_rec *r, char *a)
    if (*a == '\0' || !strcmp(a, "pid")) {
        return apr_psprintf(r->pool, "%" APR_PID_T_FMT, getpid());
    else if (!strcmp(a, "tid")) {
        apr_os_thread_t tid = apr_os_thread_current();
        int tid = 0; /* APR will format "0" anyway but an arg is needed */
        return apr_psprintf(r->pool, "%pT", &tid);
    /* bogus format */
    return a;
