Subject[patch 6/6] posix-cpu-timers: Make PID=0 and PID=self handling consistent
If the PID encoded into the clock id is 0 then the target is either the
calling thread itself or the process to which it belongs.

If the current thread encodes its own PID on a process wide clock then
there is no reason not to treat it in the same way as the PID=0 case.
