Subject: [PATCH v2] fix clock_nanosleep error case

posix requires that EINVAL be returned if the first parameter specifies
the cpu-time clock of the calling thread (CLOCK_THREAD_CPUTIME_ID).
linux returns ENOTSUP instead so we handle this.
Applied Szabolcs' suggestion for remapping the return value.
clock_nanosleep is required to be a cancellation point.
