fix async-cancel-safety of pthread_cancel
the previous commit addressing async-signal-safety issues around pthread_kill did not fully fix pthread_cancel, which is also required (albeit rather irrationally) to be async-cancel-safe. without blocking implementation-internal signals, it's possible that, when async cancellation is enabled, a cancel signal sent by another thread interrupts pthread_kill while the killlock for a targeted thread is held. as a result, the calling thread will terminate due to cancellation without ever unlocking the targeted thread's killlock, and thus the targeted thread will be unable to exit.
