  The use of INTERNAL_SYSCALL here was gratuitous Linuxism, presumably
motivated by gratuitous microoptimization.  In the context of making
multiple system calls and starting a thread, the function call overhead of
going through the normal API is negligible.  And checking for "impossible"
errors when not -DNDEBUG is just baseline sensible practice.

Tested x86_64-linux-gnu.


	* sysdeps/nptl/gai_misc.h (__gai_start_notify_thread):
	Use pthread_sigmask rather than INTERNAL_SYSCALL.
	Use assert_perror to check its return value.
	(__gai_create_helper_thread): Likewise.
