This function returned positive error numbers instead
of negative ones as desbribed in the doc. What's worse,
multiple of its callers only check for (rc < 0) to detect
failure.

It was incorrectly assumed that pthread_create
and pthread_setaffinity_np return negative errnos. They
always returns positive ones, so this patch negates their
return values before returning.
