Huh, that can't be right, should be pd->tid != 0.

Don't we have test coverage for this?

We can return 0 in this case, I think.

It's possibly that the same issue regarding synchronous signal delivery
for pthread_jill applies here.

Thanks,
Florian

It is definitely not, I have fixed.

Nops, I will add one in the next version.

No sure about this, we can return 0 but it means signal won't be potentially
delivered.

The thread may have already started exiting and blocked the signals when
pthread_sigqueue is called.  In that case, it would return 0 even though
the signal is never delivered.
