Subject: [PATCH] time: Fix bug in timer_create

time: Fix bug in timer_create

When create a SIGEV_THREAD timer, in helper thread "start",
"id" is assigned with self->timer_id immediately after pthread_create.
But the real timer_id is assigned to self->timer_id after SYS_timer_create.
So "id" in "start" always be 0, and timer_delete will always fail.
Put assignement of "id" after pthread_barrier_wait can fix this bug.
