Clean up pthread_create() error handling
Normally pthread_create() rarely fails. But with new pthreads wrapper, pthread_create() will return ENOSYS on a system without thread support. Threaded code _is_ protected by HAVE_THREADS and pthread_create() should never run in the first place. But the situation could change in the future and bugs may sneak in. Make sure that all pthread_create() reports the error cause. While at there, mark these strings for translation if they aren't. Signed-off-by: Nguyễn Thái Ngọc Duy <> Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <>
